These foods can disturb your sleep and cause unwanted weight gain. We tell you what kind of food  you should not eat if you want to lose weight

Studies have shown that while the initial effect of alcohol may relax us, it generally disrupts sleep later on in the night. This means we may wake up tired and sleep deprived.

Packaged Snack Foods

These foods are high in sugar, fat, and salt and can lead to sleeplessness and puffy eyes in the morning.
