What you eat can influence the quality of your sleep

Scientists have confirmed what most of us already know from experience: what you eat can influence the quality of your sleep. Studies have demonstrated that consuming less fibre, more sugar and more saturated fat tends to result in lighter, more interrupted and less restorative sleeping patterns.
