Many people don't realize this, but what you eat at the end of the day can have a dramatic effect on how you sleep at night.

So one of the things I tell people to do, is even if you are going to have some of these things make sure that you stop or close the kitchen, by about 7 PM, this gives your body the opportunity to digest these foods, to get them through your system so they don't have a big effect on your sleep.
