(HealthDay News) -- Shedding extra sugar from your diet may help you get a more restful night's sleep.

The National Sleep Foundation advises:

  • Too much sugar may raise your risk of waking during the night.
  • Your energy may crash well after a high-sugar treat, prompting you to feel drowsy during the day.
  • Avoid refined sugars found in many cereals, juices, desserts, white bread, sodas and white pasta.
