    chocolate contains caffeine, that's probably a good place to start(stop)

    Anything spicy too! Caffeine and well late eating in general!

    Coffee, specially late in evening to sleep better.

    I heard drinking milk helps with sleep! I have not tried it though.

    All the above and I'll add tea (even though it's in the category of caffeine) and I'll add cheese to that list.  Also, lots of water is not a good idea - actually drinking anything before attempting to go to bed is not a good idea....

    I think everything that has caffeine. Coffee is number one on the list.

    Anything with caffeine - coffee, chocolate, some pops (Colas, Jolt, Mountain Dew).  Some teas are caffeinated as well. 

    In addition to foods, if you're having trouble sleeping you may need to modify your sleep environment. 
    1,  No TVs in the bedroom - train your body that bed is a place to sleep, not watch tv.
    2.  Complete darkness - so use black-out type material on the windows. 
    3.  Cool temperature. 
    4.  If you have a lot on your mind, write it all down on a piece of paper and tell yourself you'll take care of it in the morning. Otherwise you may end up tossing and turning all night long because of those things on your mind.

    I find I naturally get sleepy at a certain time.  If I stay awake past that because I'm watching a tv show or reading, I get energized and then it takes longer to fall asleep.
