  • Yes, your diet is an important factor when it comes to having a healthy sleep schedule. Studies show that eating less fiber and more saturated fat/sugar is linked with less restorative sleep. Evidence suggests that lacking nutrients like calcium, magnesium, and vitamins A, C, D, E, and K is linked to sleep problems. 
  • Eating a lot of carbs is linked to poor sleep quality. Your food and sleep habits go hand in hand. If you’re not getting enough sleep, studies show people start increasing their food consumption. A lack of sleep is also related to eating more high-calorie foods with less nutritional value.
