Losing weight seems like hard work. To meet the desired goal, the first thing we must do is to change our diet, to think of a plan of exercises and even to reduce the stress levels. But did you know that there are five little tricks that can help you in this fight even while you are sleeping?
While most experts say that it is not recommended to eat before going to bed, however, the latest research shows that a small snack before bed can actually help losing weight. People, who drink a shake of 150 protein calories 30-60 minutes before bedtime, are actually accelerating their metabolism and thus promoting weight loss.
Close the curtains and lower the blinds
Sleeping with your TV on, your lamp or any other source of light affects your quality of sleep. The body needs a certain amount of sleep to get rid of the stress and relax. It is known that stress negatively affects our metabolism. Therefore, switch off the appliances, lower the blinds and get some sleep.
Prepare a healthy meal for the next day. Pack the bag for the gym and leave it by the door. When you wake up in the morning, those are the things that you usually hate or neglect to do, and are the key if you want to lead a healthy life. So everything you can finish today, do not leave for tomorrow.
Reduce the heat
Many scientific researches proved that sleeping in a room with lower temperature accelerates the metabolism, because the body needs more energy to warm itself.
Set the alarm clock
According to studies, women who wake up every morning at the same time have less weight than those who do not. It not only affects the weight, studies say that awakening at different times each day can boost the risk of heart disease and cancer. Therefore, try to always wake up at the same time, so that your body can get the restful sleep of seven hours that it needs to relax and prepare for the next day.
