Nights are perfect for going on hot dates, binge watching your favorite program, chatting on the phone or catching up on some work. Nevertheless, another thing which makes nights great is that they can set you up for better weight loss outcome. All you need to do is follow these tips.
Have a Low-Sodium Dinner
According to Keri Gans, R.D., author of The Small Change Diet, if you want to avoid waking up bloated you should definitely pass over the Chinese dinner. Salt remains in your body overnight, and you wake up more bloated than usual. The best alternative is cooking a healthy steamed veggies meal and food rich in lean protein. None of the meals should be stacked with salt.
Do a Nighttime Exercise Session
It is known that exercise helps you lose weight, and if you believe that exercising before going to bed is going to keep you awake all night, you are wrong. According to a 2013 survey conducted by the National Sleep Foundation, 56% to 67 % of people who do exercise regardless of the time of day, sleep better.
Prepare Your Lunch
Normal restaurant meal has two times more calories than the calories one should consume in one helping. Not to mention that if you want to lose weight the calorie intake should be even lower. It is time consuming to make yourself a lunch during the day when you are in a rush, but it is for the best to prepare the meal the previous night. Packing a to-go salad in a jar will do the trick.
Drink Plenty of Water
H2O cleans your system, and helps you dispose of any water you have been retaining. However, you should stop you water gulping one hour prior to going to bed since it will be annoying to go to the toilet all night.
Your Bedroom Should Be Super Dark
An animal study published inthe Journal of Pineal Research suggests that melatonin helps the body in producing more calorie-burning brown fat. Melatonin is produced by the body when it is in complete darkness, so be sure that your room is completely dark to boost your weight lost.
Lower the Heating before Going to bed
The notion of burning more calories whilst you are sleeping sounds like a fairytale, but according to the National Institute of Health, people that slept in a room which had 66-degree lost7%extra calories tothose who slept at 75 degrees.
