In general, dinner is a very healthy meal. Some people get up early for work, are busy all day and cannot eat properly, the only way they can eat well is dinner.
Dinner, traditional for many families, is a hearty meal, followed by dessert. This is not very useful, but if such a dinner ends no later than 6-7 hours, then the situation is not yet critical. And when you sit down to have supper shortly before bedtime, besides, eat very densely, and the food is mostly heavy, seasoned with sauces, mayonnaise and ketchup, then such a supper should certainly be prepared for the enemy. Fatty and fried foods, slow-digesting carbohydrates, as well as various pastries and sweets are the least suitable for dinner.
But if dinner ends 3-4 hours before bedtime, and its energy value is no more than 1/5 of the calories you consume per day, then this dinner should be reserved for yourself, and let someone else feed the enemy. It is best not to drink caffeinated drinks at dinner. It's good if all the food is almost completely digested by the body by the time you go to bed. A healthy dinner includes dairy products such as kefir, fermented baked milk, cottage cheese, yoghurts. They are digested very quickly. Boiled meat, potatoes, fruits, salads and vegetables take a little more time.
