We’ve all heard the saying “You are what you eat.” But, what about “You sleep what you eat?!”
A new study found:
1. Eating less fiber, more saturated fat and more sugar = lighter, less restorative, and more disrupted sleep
2. Greater fiber intake = more time spent in the stage of deep, slow wave sleep
3. A higher percentage of energy from saturated fat = less slow wave sleep
4. Greater sugar intake = more arousals from sleep
Surprised? You shouldn’t be!
Turns out your veggie-loving mother was right. What we eat has a drastic impact on everything from how we think and feel to how well we sleep.
