The only woman who managed to keep perfect body figure is Sleeping Beauty. Luckily, now you can do it too. It is really possible to lose calories while you sleep with just a few smart decisions made before. Not only you’ll lose weight, but you’ll also sleep better. Enough sleep ensures normal hormonal activity and improved health in general.
#1 Small portions, more proteins
Evening meal should not be big. In this case, stick to an old saying: “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper“. Your meal should contain more vegetables and proteins like fish, chicken or lamb. Also, eat whole-wheat bread. The reason for this is insulin, a hormone which in this case won’t be released excessively, thereby creating fatty deposits. Besides, avoiding greasy food also prevents heartburn, so you’ll sleep better.
#2 Turn off all the appliances
Melatonin is a hormone which helps regulate sleep and wake cycles. The presence of light inhibits its secretion. By disturbing natural rhythm of hormones, we also disturb the entire metabolism. Hence, darken the room where you sleep and turn off all the appliances. (Yes, your phone too!)
#3 Turn down temperature while you sleep
It is an awful feeling to lie in a cold bed, but you know what? This will help better your body shape. When you turn down the temperature of the room where you sleep, your body does everything to stay warm and this is possible only by burning calories.
#4 Blue room
Color the walls of your bedroom in blue. Have you ever wondered why fast food chains always have their walls colored in orange, yellow and red? Because these colors stimulate appetite. Blue, on the other hand, is soothing. Numerous studies have proven that food is less attractive on blue plates than on plates of other colors.
#5 Never sleep alone
Getting enough sleep will boost your libido and more sex means more burnt calories. Thus, get a good night sleep and get on to business. Perfect body shape is guaranteed.
#6 It’s tea time
Make time for – tea time. The best choices are chamomile tea, peppermint tea, and valerian tea that will relax the body and help you feel sleepy. These teas are also good for your figure. Peppermint tea is an excellent remedy for bloating, so have a cup and wake up with a flat stomach in the morning!
