Is it true that we should stop eating before 8pm? Dr. Oz says “yes!” Eating too close to bedtime causes acid reflux or the more serious GERD, gastro-esophageal reflux disease. When stomach acids gurgle back up they can cause heartburn, nausea, bloating, indigestion and even hoarseness and coughing. Scary enough, there may be a link between severe GERD and esophageal cancer.

The recommendation is to wait at least three hours after eating before you lay down. If you do eat late, try to make the meal a light one and skip the caffeine, soda, alcohol and chocolate.(No chocolate? umm, that’s gonna be tough)
