Besides eating healthy one should eat early to ward off digestive problems and disorders.

Generally, we sleep just after having dinner and fail to give the stomach sufficient time for digestion. Neelanjan Singh, Nutritionist with Heinz Nutri Life Clinic explains that most of your digestive problems can be fixed with an early dinner. "It is important to have an early dinner because if you have a late dinner the body does not have time to digest it well," says Neelanjana. "You are going to be in the prone position soon where you lie down flat on the bed. That way the digestive track is not working at its optimal level."

Hence it is advised to give your body 2 hours before you hit the sack. Neelanjana Singh recommends some basic solutions that you can in corporate in your daily life, "Best yogic posture for digestion is vajra assan, the kneeling pose." She further explains the benefits of an early dinner, "When you have early dinner, you are unlikely to go to bed after supper. You are likely to be sitting up, engaging in moderate activity at home, and maybe watching T.V. In that posture, digestion is better and you will go to sleep when you are not really bloated with food. That could lead to acidity and flatulence and gas. Acidity becomes a big problem if you have a late dinner."

Bottom line: Digestion takes two hours, hence to avoid digestive disorders give your stomach two hours before you go sleep.
