Even if you wake up feeling full from the previous night's dinner, try to munch on a little something in the a.m. "Heavy meals late in the evening are likely to overwhelm your digestive system and can even interfere with a restful sleep," Davis says. "But if you indulge once in a while, keep in mind that even if you feel full the next morning, you haven't had any nourishment since you went to bed. Skipping meals can cause your metabolism to slow down, so if you can, try a slice of plain, whole-grain toast and hot tea, or some apple slices with plain, non-fat yogurt."
