There are simple evening hacks that can help you drop some pounds and lose belly fat easily. A lot of people believe that the gym is the most appropriate place to shed weight and others also say distance runners, cyclists, triathletes, and other forms of trucking along with sweat in their eyes and numbers stuck on their chests. The nutritionists also conclude that the kitchen could be a great haven for weight loss.

However, they are all wrong. Real, successful, and sustainable weight loss is derived from achieving excellence in a completely unexpected realm: the bedroom! Now, you can’t love to make your way to being lean. It is possible for you to absolutely sleep your way to a slimmer you. You should be aware that no amount of pounds you press, how many miles you log, how much kale you crunch, it won’t take you anywhere near your weight loss goals unless you are also having enough quality sleep.

Here are few tweaks to your night routine which can mean serious weight loss success:

1.     Understand how necessary sleep is for weight loss: It is necessary for you to realize how important a good night’s sleep is for optimizing and regulating the general body functions which even include how you use and store caloric energy. There are two hormones which work actively on this aspect and they are leptin and ghrelin. Leptin assists to regulate the energy levels and keep the appetite low, while ghrelin stimulates hunger and often initiates the quest to eat. Therefore, if you sleep more, you have been able to reduce your ghrelin levels and increased the laptin levels which assist to control the appetites throughout the day.

2.     Sip a cup of tea: You should endeavor to sip a cup of rooibos tea to help burn belly fat. Rooibos tea is naturally decaffeinated and is made from the leaves of the red bush plant which is typically grown in South Africa. The tea is fantastic for the belly due to its unique and powerful flavonoid known as Aspalathin. According to research, the compound can reduce stress hormones which usually trigger hunger and fat storage.

3.     Load up on tryptophan: Tryptophan is an amino acid found in most meats which has demonstrated strong powerful sleep-inducing effects. According to some studies, dieters consumed 6% fewer calories when they got enough sleep. The National Sleep Foundation suggests seven to eight hours of sleep for most adults.

4.     Eat cottage cheese: It is not healthy to completely avoid food before bedtime as going to bed with a rumbling tummy can make falling asleep a difficult thing to happen. Also, people who wake up feeling hungry are far more likely to pig out on a big breakfast. Therefore, it is recommended that you have a little cottage cheese before bed. It is not only rich in casein protein but also contains the amino acid tryptophan.

5.     Make a routine: When you continuously do a particular thing every night, for at least one hour before the bedtime, you are definitely programming sleep triggers. The triggers could be in the form of writing in your sleep diary, eating cottage cheese, and several other acts. Over time, your brain will start to associate those things with bedtime and fast track you into fat-burning slumber.

6.     Engage in some resistance training: There is some pre-sleep training that can help optimize the weight you lose during sleep. In a journal published by the International Journal of Sport Nutrition, people who performed resistance exercises enjoyed a higher resting metabolic rate for an average of 16 hours following their workout. If the first thing you do in the morning is physical workout, you will observe that your sleepy time weight loss won’t be impacted by the spike in metabolism.

7.     Relax: It is really a frustrating thing to look at the clock all night and worrying you for not being able to drift off at 1am, 2am, and again at 3am. It actually doesn’t help things. You should rather take comfort in the fact that merely relaxing your mind and body will help rejuvenate you in lieu of honest-to-goodness sleep. When you aren’t excited about your inability to fall asleep. It will come naturally.

8.     Follow the 20-minute rule: When you aren’t getting anywhere after chilling out for 20minutes, get out of bed, stay off the bedroom and do something quiet and unstimulating. You can try reading a book, or flipping through a catalog.

9.     Fit in late cardio: Late cardio includes walking around the neighborhood, walking or running up and down the stairs, jogging and/or riding an exercise bike. Including these forms of activities to your pre-bed routine can help you to lose belly fat. Another bonus point is when you do a little resistance training immediately before the late cardio session.

10.                         Take a shower: It has been studied that temperature drops were an important sleep cue for our Paleolithic forebears. If we are unable to sleep under the stars much, then we can recreate a sunset-like temperature drop by taking a shower or hot bath. The dip could be effective in making you shed some pounds whilst falling asleep faster.
