Most Asthma patients notice that what they eat affects how often they get Asthma attacks. For this reason it is a good idea to eat dinner early. Late dinners should be avoided since they don’t give you the time to digest the food you have eaten. Eat a  light dinner- something like soups are perfect. Avoid eating rich food with lots of oil and spices since these can cause an Asthma attack.
