There are several foods and diets that may inhibit your sleep or disrupt your sleep patterns, reports MDLinx.

Refined carbs like white bread and white rice might be yummy, but they are high on the glycemic index. Diets high in high-glycemic foods not only increase your risk for type 2 diabetes and other serious health problems, but can also disturb your sleep. Although some researchers have shown that eating a carb-based, high-glycemic meal 4 hours before bed can induce sleep, it’s important to note that doing so will not translate to better sleep quality.
