Does sleep help burn fat and lose weight? What should and shouldn't I eat before going to bed?

Yes, it does help in weight loss. Although I am not sure about fat loss, you can control several things that will eventually lead to fat loss as well. People who are deprived of sleep often tend to gain weight rather than lose it. There are different reasons for this. People who don’t sleep properly find it difficult to control their hunger. This leads to weight gain.

Studies have shown that people who don’t sleep properly often suffer from low blood sugar levels and this can lead to sugar craving late at night. Consuming food late at night is not good for your health as it can cause several digestive problems. Your metabolism doesn’t work properly during night and this might force your body to store all that food as fat.

There are several foods that you can eat during your day. If you are serious about weight loss then consume meals in portion. Don’t starve yourself and don’t consume a big portion in one go. This won’t allow your body to absorb all the nutrients. Foods like bone broth, salmon, sardines, vegetables, grains, nuts, and fresh fruits helps a lot with fat and weight loss.

If you want to lose weight then don’t consume any heavy meal 3 hours before you go to sleep. This will allow your body to properly digest the food and also help you in losing weight.

Drinking a cup of warm green tea 2 hours before you go to sleep is also very beneficial for your health. These are some of the things that you should keep in mind before heading to your bed.
