‘Study suggests that what you eat can influence how you sleep’, http://www.aasmnet.org/articles.aspx?id=6072, AASM News, American Academy of Sleep Medicine (January 14, 2016).
Results show that greater fiber intake predicted more time spent in the stage of deep, slow wave sleep. In contrast, a higher percentage of energy from saturated fat predicted less slow wave sleep. Greater sugar intake also was associated with more arousals from sleep. (…) Main finding was that diet quality influenced sleep quality. (…) The finding that diet can influence sleep has tremendous health implications, given the increasing recognition of the role of sleep in the development of chronic disorders such as hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
