Expatriate overseas health insurance customers may want to eat their final meal of the day earlier than they would otherwise.
This is following advice made by health and wellbeing consultant and founder of Hermieopathy Hermie Hogg, who asserted that four hours are required for proper digestion.
Employees who have a meal as soon as they arrive home from work usually have better sleep and will prevent stress to their liver, she continued.
"Your digestive system is sluggish in the evening," the consultant noted.
Having a full stomach overnight will make people feel more tired in the morning, so it "really is vital", Ms Hogg claimed.
She added that there is no reason for an individual to consume solely junk food, as preparing a healthy snack – such as a wholemeal salad sandwich or a soup – "takes five minutes".
A proper night's sleep is an essential part of human wellbeing, social psychologist Dr Sandra Wheatley recently argued.
