There are scientific researches that shows that eating at night may be harmful in two ways. It is important that you don't eat excessively at night, to avoid certain health conditions. The following are two reasons why you shouldn't eat before going to bed at night. They include the following:

1. You may develop an unhealthy habit

Eating before going to bed may lead to an addiction, especially if you eat late night snacks before going to bed. Late night snacks might lead to extra calories storing in the body because it is at a state of rest. There are people who eat lots of snacks at night when watching television or using their laptops. There are people who don't eat much in the morning before going out, and they eventually get really hungry at night which makes them eat too much. Continuing this pattern may lead to a bad habit of eating too much at night, and causing unwanted weight gain.

2 People with acid reflux
