Most of us are looking for a simple yet effective way to lose weight for good with no effort. It turns out you can lose weight while sleeping as long as you follow some secret tips that actually work. In case you were looking for a super easy weight loss technique – here it is.
An American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study found that well-rested people burn 20% more calories after eating than those who don’t get enough sleep.
Have a shake with about 30 grams of protein before heading to bed. That’ll be enough for you to lose weight, all while catching some z’s. During deep sleep, our brain puts out a growth hormone. If you eat late at night, that growth hormone stores the food in your system as fat instead of fuel. And there you go, a few more inches around the waist that you never asked for.
Consuming alcohol close to bedtime will make your body metabolize the alcohol during your sleep. This process will keep you from achieving a state of REM sleep, which is when your body burns the most calories at night.
Exercise gets the heart pumping and wakes the body up, making it difficult to achieve a good night’s rest if you work out before you go to sleep so do it in the morning.

-Protein aids in muscle repair, and the more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn when you’re sleeping.
-Eating smaller portions allows you to eat exactly the amount of food you need, as opposed to leaving the table feeling like you’re about to explode.
-A glass of wine with dinner is okay but don’t consume any alcohol within three hours before bedtime. That way, you’ll get some good-quality and calorie-burning sleep.
-Setting a consistent bedtime and getting the right amount of sleep, which is about 7 to 8 hours, helps the body burn more fat.
-Do your exercises in the morning, since physical training wakes the body up. Plus, it’ll help you kick-start your day and keep you energized throughout it.
-Your devices are keeping you from sleeping and your body from burning fat. Turn them off at bedtime and get some shuteye.
-Sleeping in cooler temperatures enhances the body’s storage of brown adipose tissue, which helps burn fat stored in the belly by keeping us warm.
-Sleeping in complete darkness assists your body in producing melatonin that aids in the production of brown adipose tissue that keeps us warm and burns belly fat.
-Without clothes, your body stays cool, which, as we mentioned before, also helps you burn more calories while resting.
