People trying to lose weight focus on weight loss activities that they can do while awake. But did you know that you can shed off fats in your sleep by simply doing night-time habits before curling up under the cover?
According to experts, doing certain bedtime habits can help you lose the extra pounds while you’re dreaming. Take a look at some activities that will help ensure that you’ll slim down while sleeping.
1. Sleep naked.
Findings of research showed that sleeping naked can speed up night-time weight loss as it increases your metabolic rate. Your body produces fat to heat up the body when you feel cold at night. That may sound more like a disadvantage but the process can also help burn calories. So while the body is producing fat to keep you warm, it also speeds up your metabolism and burns calories.
2. Eat before bedtime.
The idea of consuming food before sleeping may sound counterproductive but it may actually be good for your weight loss goals. Going to bed hungry makes it difficult for us to fall asleep. Moreover, people who wake up feeling hungry are more likely to overeat at breakfast. Experts suggest that we eat 300-calorie snacks before bedtime. Of course, we need to ditch junk food in our list of night-time snacks.
3. Train hard before bedtime.
Do an intense workout before dozing off as it increases your metabolic rate that may last for an average of 16 hours after exercising. However, experts have also warned that an intense workout can get in the way of a good night’s sleep.
4. Drink grape juice.
A substance found in wine and grape juice called resveratrol can help transform bad fat into a good one, based on the findings of a recent study at Washington State University. Lead researcher Professor Min Du explained that resveratrol turns “white fat” into “beige fat”, which is much easier to burn.
5. Sleep in a dark room.
A study carried out by researchers at University of Oxford has found that female participants who slept in dark rooms were 20% less likely to be obese compared to women who dozed off in lighter rooms. That’s because light can decrease your body’s production of melatonin, which interferes with sleep quality. When we don’t get enough sleep and feel tired, we tend to have less control over what we eat.
