Eating late deprives your digestive organs the required rest

Your body gets rest when you sleep. Your digestive system needs rest too. When you eat late, your digestive system has to work when your are sleeping.

Your digestive system needs 3-4 hours to digest your meal. So if you are going to bed at 10 pm, you last meal should be over before 7 pm.
