Ok, we all know that we really shouldn’t eat late at night. It piles on the pounds and can keep us awake, but some foods are super offenders.

Eating certain things late at night might sound tasty or comforting, but they can put a strain on your digestive system, give you nightmares, or even make you get up and pee more than once, interrupting your beauty sleep.

Eat a healthy dinner and try to skip the late night snacking. If your tummy is growling, however, and you want a bite to eat before you hit the hay, remember about these 5 foods to never eat before bed time.

Pasta is one of the most calorie dense forms of carbohydrates around. Carbs from pasta tend to end up right in your belly and show up in your waistline measurement. Unless you want to start adding new holes in your belt, save the pasta for lunch or dinner and just forget about it as a midnight snack.


2. Chocolate or Candy
