Sleep is the body’s recovery phase of the day. This is when muscles can repair and the brain can recharge. What you eat and drink can have a dramatic effect on your sleep patterns but there are many strategies you can use to promote good sleep, including making changes to your diet, as some foods have sleep-promoting properties. Insufficient sleep causes us to seek out high-calorie foods the next day.
