Three late-night snacks to help you sleep

Three late-night snacks to help you sleep

The summer is a perfect time to hit the gym, and doing so can leave you feeling energized and upbeat about those future treks to the beach. But the downside to all this renewed vigor is that you might have problems catching some shut eye when you're through. Luckily for you, there are some foods loaded in carbohydrates and vitamins that can help you sleep without ruining your weight loss goals.

1. Chickpeas. These tasty beans are an ideal side dish for most meals and are rich in vitamin B6, which helps your body create serotonin, a neurotransmitter that can make you drowsy. Grab some tahini and mash up some chickpeas for a scrumptious hummus you can munch on before bed.

2. Halibut. Some seafood can be difficult on sensitive palates, but halibut is a savory, easy dish that is loaded in vitamin B6. Halibut also contains tryptophan, an amino acid that helps your body produce serotonin.

3. Cherries. Melatonin supplements are a quick way to fall fast asleep, but if you'd rather chow down on something sweet, consider a bowl of cherries. Like other nap-inducing foods, cherries aid in serotonin production but are also an all-natural source of melatonin.

Before you hit the hay, don't forget to apply a product like Bliss Fat Girl Sleep, which can help reduce cellulite around your body's pudgy places as you sleep.
