Eating Late Upsets Your Body

More Energy Project Day #12

Another long day at work, but having a dinner to look forward to kept me going.

Although dinner with my colleagues were fantastic and energizing in the moment it ended up upsetting my body. Eating a large meal after 19.00  (7 pm) is not a good idea; especially not if it contains a large amount of protein, fat and alcoholic drinks. I ended the meal with a very good cup of coffee.

The result was that I woke up at about 3 o’clock with heartburn and headache. By eating late I’m forcing my digestive organs to work at hours where they should be resting. My liver cannot process that amount of fat and protein in the middle of the night. The caffeine disturbs my nervous system and makes it difficult to sleep.
