9 Fruit Juice
Finally, the last thing to avoid after 9 P.M. is fruit juice: orange juice, grapefruit juice, cranberry juice—pretty much you name it. These are all very acidic in the body and could cause heart burn in many susceptible individuals. Definitely something to avoid before bed!
This is probably a familiar refrain by now, but fruit juices contain lots of simples sugars, with little or no fiber to allow for a measured insulin release. Fruit juices will set up a nightmarish crash-and-spike blood sugar scenario during the night.
What To Have Instead:
Opt for some fresh berries mixed with ½ cup of cottage cheese. Berries rank low on the glycemic index and will provide the sweetness needed to kill your cravings.
The cottage cheese will supply the slow digesting amino acids for your muscles to feast on during the overnight repair period.
