      Bedtime habits to help you lose weight

      Did you know that your body burns between 300 to 400 calories every night as you sleep? This is equal to energy burnt in an hour-long run. Here are some great bedtime habits that you can incorporate into your daily routine and burn calories as you sleep.

      Resistance training

      Weight lifting or swimming before you go to sleep are good ideas. Both these do not charge you up in a way that you have trouble falling asleep but instead stimulate calorie burning. This effect lasts even while you sleep.

      Go for a protein snack

      You have always been told that snacking before you sleep is bad! However, here’s news. Choose foods which are abundant in protein such as Greek yogurt, lean turkey, low-fat cottage cheese, or peanut butter. These boost your metabolic rate and promote muscle growth.

      Sleep in a cool room

      It’s best to maintain your bedroom temperature at around 18°C (64.4°F) at night as this helps boost your metabolism. This environment activates the body’s beige fat cells and these help in thermoregulation and burns fat as you sleep.

      Drink grape juice

      Grape juice contains resveratrol, a substance that is good at helping the body burn calories through a process of converting the white fat into beige fat. This beige fat is used up by the body at night to keep you warm. This naturally makes you slimmer.

      Regular sleeping & waking routines

      Try to maintain a particular time to go to bed and to wake up. The hormone melatonin prompts us to go to bed and this is what stimulates the beige fat and its activity of burning calories. In case, your sleep habits are irregular, the production of melatonin is impacted, and you might end up waking tired and crave high calorie snacks.
