5. Late night meals or snacks
If you are the type of person to eat dinner less than two hours before bed or have a snack in the middle of the night, youâll want to rethink those habits.
Even if you do not overeat, too much food at bedtime will kick your digestive system into gear disrupt your sleep cycle. You will get fewer hours of quality sleep as well as a rapid spike in your blood sugar.
To avoid getting hungry late at night, try eating your largest meals in the morning, at lunch, or at least four hours before you go to bed. This will give your body a chance to burn off the extra calories and allow your digestive system to wind down before its time to settle in for the night.
If you eliminate these habits that can cause diabetes from your life and replace them with a healthy diet, regular exercise, and consistent eight-hour nights, you will markedly lessen your risk of developing this disease.
