Did you know you can burn calories while you sleep? It has to do with different factors, including your weight, your metabolism, and how much sleep you get each night. A person that weighs 56 kg burns approximately 38 calories per hour, while sleeping. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but multiply that by the recommended 7 to 9 hours of sleep and it adds up to about 270-350 calories for sleeping.
Here are 5 ways to lose weight while sleeping:
- Drink a Casein Shake before bed
Casein is a gradually digested protein that can take your body around six to eight hours to break down. This means your metabolism will be kept active throughout the night, and you’ll wake up feeling energetic instead of starving.
NPL micellar casein protein contains key ingredients that provide optimal (anabolic) muscle growth by increasing natural growth hormone levels and improving sleep, as well as supporting muscular recovery and boosting the immune system. They also serve an important role in a good night’s sleep.
- Sleep more!
Leptin is a hormone that is produced in your fat cells. The less leptin you produce, the more your stomach feels empty. At the same time, the loss of sleep causes your body to produce more ghrelin. You need to control leptin and ghrelin to successfully lose weight, but sleep deprivation makes that nearly impossible. So sleep more!
- Resistance Training
Even a regimen of 20 to 30 minutes of exercise a day will help improve the quality of sleep. Burning fat is all about boosting your metabolism, and resistance training is great for this. When you sleep deeply, it aids your body’s hormone balance, which in turn helps the repair and growth of muscle. This resistance training session doesn’t need to be excessive. A simple weight lifting routine will suffice, even if it doesn’t push you to the limit and leave you breathless.
- Banish electronics from the bedroom
If you want to lose weight overnight, all blue light devices need to go. This includes a laptop, tablet, smartphone and yes a TV! Night time exposure to the blue light they all emit disrupts the production of the melatonin the body needs to promote sleep.
- Sleep darker
To lose weight during sleep, try getting rid of that nightlight, too. Consider investing in blackout curtains to block the light from the outside, even that dim light that may delay melatonin production. Melatonin production overnight is important because it may increase metabolism, weight loss, and provide protection for muscle tissue.
If you’re struggling to sleep try NPL GABA. GABA is ideal for individuals seeking a more restful sleep, relaxation and balanced mood by supporting the nervous system. NPL Night Time Burn is an innovative weight management supplement that works while you sleep! It is intended to aid weight management efforts with natural ingredients that may promote stress relief, adrenal support and cortisol reduction
