Moms with kids. What not to eat before sleeping

From Jillian Michael – “Avoid starchy carbs before bed. Here’s the thing: Your body releases human growth hormone (HGH), its fat-burning, muscle-building hormone, during your first sleep cycle — but starchy and sugary carbs, such as potatoes, bread, cereals, pasta and dried fruits, thwart HGH production.

That’s because these foods release insulin, which in turn drives down your HGH levels while you snooze. My suggestion is to cut these carbs at least three hours before you go to sleep. Even better if you avoid them altogether at dinner.”

Nudgeable: Today, just today, reduce the amount of carbs you serve on your child’s plate. Slowly and steadily reduce more every week.

How did that work for you?

p.s. Nudgeables are short and easy suggestions that fit into your life. They are awesome!
