How long before sleeping is it safe to eat dessert? I have a major sweet tooth and more often than not, I end up eating sugary foods after dinner, e.g. donuts, cookies, and/or ice cream. This is usually about 3 hours before I go to bed.
I’m trying to cut back on the dessert, but it occurred to me that eating anything sugary (including fruit) too close to bedtime can negatively effect sleep. How long generally should one wait after eating dessert before going to bed?
