Does fatty food in the evening have an impact on breathing pauses?

Nutrition plays an important role in restful sleep. What to do and what not to do in the evening.

Everyone likes to eat a pizza in the evening. But be careful with fatty and rich food, especially in the evening, because it affects sleep.

Short and sweet:

  • If you eat a lot or are very greasy in the evening, you generally run the risk of sleeping poorly the following night.
  • Late meals in particular worsen the quality of sleep and lead to increased breathing interruptions in patients with sleep apnea. 
  • In general, an unhealthy diet can lead to obesity, which in turn is a risk factor for sleep apnea.
  • A healthy lifestyle with few carbohydrates or a Mediterranean diet has a positive influence on the risk factor weight.
  • Weight reduction, in turn, significantly improves the symptoms of sleep apnea in most patients. 

Everyone wants to sleep well. It is advisable to eat light food in the evening, e.g. B. fresh salad, vegetables or the popular evening meal. Above all, it is important not to eat too late. 

You can find out easily with the Snorefox app whether you are experiencing breathing pauses - after a late or greasy meal or even after a light evening meal. Snorefox analyzes whether there is a risk of sleep apnea and does so very easily using a smartphone at home.
