With 2016 shaping up to be a busy a challenging year, you need all the help you can get when it comes to dieting and losing weight. As you probably already know, losing weight and maintaining yourself can sometimes be one of the most difficult things you have to do. Not to mention that it can require a lot of effort and time from your part.
The Teatox team has thought of way of helping you improve the results of your diet without having to do anything except follow a few magical rules for losing weight while you sleep. Yes, you read that right, you can lose weight while you sleep. In fact, it is when you sleep that your body processes all the information it has received during the day, whether we are talking about your diet or your exercising time, which is why people always say that while on a diet, you need to get a decent amount of sleep. But can you actually improve the percentage of weight loss that occurs during sleep? And if the answer is yes, what is the best way of doing so? You will be surprised by just how easy it is. Let’s find out:
Low Sodium Dinners
Did you know that foods that are high in sodium do not digest well during sleep and end up leaving you feeling bloated when you wake up? Not to mention that excessive sodium can cause your body to retain more water than usual, thus encouraging weight gain. So, in order to lose more weight during sleep, you should always opt for dinners that are low in sodium, such as meals based on vegetables. Soups are always an excellent choice, as they assure an easy digestion and allow you to lose weight faster while sleeping. Plus, you will wake up feeling refreshed.
Decrease the Temperature in Your Bedroom
Studies have shown that people who sleep in rooms where the temperature reached a high of 24 degrees Celsius lose weight slower than people sleeping in rooms where the temperature did not go over 17 degrees Celsius. In fact, people who sleep in colder rooms have lost about 6 to 8% more weight than the other category. The simple explanation for this fact is that when your body finds itself in a cooler place, it starts to produce heat, thus burning more calories and more fat.
Keep Your Bedroom in the Dark
Melatonin, the hormone responsible for favoring sleep is secreted in larger quantities when the room is darker. And did you know that melatonin is also responsible for the development of good fats? Its role is to produce head in the body when in a cold environment, but also to speed up the burning of all extra fat, thus helping the body reach an ideal weight. Forget about sleeping with your lights turned on, no matter how small that light is. In fact, you can also use your curtains to make sure that your bedroom is safe from any exterior source of light.
Have Lighter Dinners
It is a known fact that a dinner rich in calories will keep you up all night and will put your body through some serious torments. But luckily, there is a trick you can do a few times a day, in order to decrease your hunger and have a smaller appetite when dinner comes: inhaling peppermint. Did you know that smell and appetite are strongly connected? When you enjoy your food, its aroma reaches your satiety center telling the body when it has had enough. This is the reason for which you can easily fool your body into thinking that it does not need any more food. And the best way of tricking your body is by inhaling or smelling peppermint, the plant with the highest powers when it comes to making your brain believe that your body has had enough.
Do it four or five times a day and also before going to bed, so that you don’t wake up with cravings in the middle of the might. Of course that, as efficient as they might be, these methods will not help you lose weight if you do not engage in an active and healthy lifestyle, but the good news is that they can definitely increase your results and help you reach your 2016 goals faster.
