Lose Weight While You Sleep – Wow!
I have many clients who constantly ask me how to lose weight, but very rarely do people consider the fact that you can speed up your metabolism while you sleep. I think this is because most people associate fat loss with hard work and high intensity exercise. This is definitely true, there are no quick shortcuts to achieving the body you want. However, there are little tricks you can do to help increase the number of calories you burn.
So let me explain how to burn fat while you sleep, losing weight while you sleep is one of the easiest tricks to burn more fat. The first tip that is probably the most important is to increase your resting metabolism in general.
In addition to increasing your RMR (resting metabolic rate), there are other solutions to lose weight while you sleep. One such solution is to focus on specific types of training that break down more muscle tissue.
Weight training in general has been shown to be the best way to break down muscle tissue safely and effectively. Slow reps with heavy enough weight is one of the best ways to maximize hypertrophy or muscle breakdown and gain.
When your muscles break down, it takes time and energy (also known as calories) to repair the damaged muscles. So if you do weight training and break down your muscles, while you sleep at night, your muscle tissues will use calories to repair themselves.
The other very effective and easy way to lose weight while you sleep is to have a high-fat, high-protein meal before bed.
Even though a high-fat meal before bed sounds a bit counterintuitive, trust me, give it a try. Fat slows down the digestion of whatever food we just ate. So if I eat a piece of steak, it will most likely take much longer to break down than a whey protein shake.
Don’t eat fat after your workout because you want the protein to be broken down and into your bloodstream and muscles as quickly as possible. To further slow the digestion of the food you eat before bed, have a slow-digesting source of protein. Again, whey protein is not very slow digesting, but there are many slow digesting protein sources to choose from. This, combined with the fat, will literally create a weight loss dinner.
Protein sources like casein, cottage cheese, milk, pork, steak, chicken, turkey, salmon, and nut butters. Be careful with nut butters because a macronutrient that we do not want to have before bed is carbohydrates. Nut butters usually come with carbs, so if you were trying to cut down and lose weight, you’d probably avoid them altogether.
I hope I have helped answer the question of how to lose weight while sleeping. Go have a dinner to lose weight and make it rich in fat and protein.
