Is there a good time to eat dinner?

Is there a good time to eat dinner?

A: Essentially with dinner, it’s this: you want to make sure that you have dinner at least 3 hours prior to going to bed. That it gives your body enough time to digest the food effectively.

So you’re not in a situation where your body is trying to digest while also trying to sleep, rest and reset your hormonal balance, adrenals, and hormonal glands.

Because if that’s the case, you’re missing out on a fantastic opportunity to have your body do what it needs to do for hormonal balance for you.

It’s really important to make sure that you are having dinner early, as early as possible. If you are going to be in a situation where hopefully (soon) you’re going to be having kids – you’re going to have dinner early anyway, so get used to it now.

We have dinner in this household at something like 5 o’clock in the afternoon. That’s our 7:00 dinner for the night. The earlier the better because your sleep is vital to you fertility health. If you need a late snack try a piece of fruit and handful of nuts and seeds or a piece of celery with a tablespoon of organic nut butter half an hour before bedtime. A snack that combines protein and carbohydrates is the best sleep inducing combination of foods.

Magnesium also can help settle the brain at night. One of the most absorbable forms of magnesium is magnesium chelate powder . Good natural sources of magnesium include green leafy vegetables, wheat germ, pumpkin seeds and almonds.
