Diet to improve sleep quality? This is what you should eat Dr. Maya Roseman

What is the relationship between sleep quality and protein? If we ask most people if there is an effect between the diet and the quality of sleep at night, they will answer in the affirmative. However, do certain ingredients in our daily menu have a greater importance in increasing the quality of sleep? 103FM’s expert dietitian, Dr. Maya Roseman, Answered this question in her program and even shared results from academic research on the subject.

“I’m with my sleep problems, researching nutrition and sleep, a lot. The more, the better,” she said at first. “This week I found two studies, I want to describe one of them. Which diet menus improve the quality of sleep?”, She continued. “So as you know, very low-calorie diets, so-called ‘sachistic’, impair the quality of sleep, because they cause low body heat, and then it makes bad sleep and many awakenings during sleep.”

“The question that arose was‘ Does every low-calorie diet cause the same thing? ’” Roseman added. “So what did they check in the American Clinical Nutrition Monthly? The question is – does the amount of protein in a very low calorie diet have an effect. The diets they checked are 750 calories a day. The participants who got high-protein menus slept much better than the menus they got and were low in protein. We gave them 750 calories for four weeks, and checked the quality of sleep and each menu had a different percentage of protein. “

Roseman went on to describe the experiment: “Those who were high in protein and slept better changed their diet and gave them the low protein to see what was going on, and then they slept less well.

“I want to add something personal to myself,” the dietitian continued in a personal tone, “sleep is very important for breaking down fat, for burning calories the next day, because if we are tired we will do less sports, or burn less in sports because we will not have strength, because we will be tired “Sleep also contributes to reducing stress. Reducing stress is also very important during the diet. So it is important to sleep well because it contributes to weight loss over time.”
