SSHHHH! Fat Loss Tip #1: I’m trying to recharge my body clock…..ZZZZZzzzzzzzz
All mammals have body-clocks. Many of us our often sick, fat, diabetic and are suffering from heart disease and cancer because our body-clocks are not normal.
Mammals are hard wired to store fat, become insulin resistant and we often get high cholesterol during the longer days of summer. The longer you stay up at night, the more your brain will force you to seek energy for storage by eating sugar. As a result, we store sugar as fat! This makes our fat loss goals nearly impossible to achieve.
A good nights sleep is a major contributor towards achieving your fat loss goals. A good nights sleep will cause the body to be so physically relaxed that fatigued muscles get access to a good blood supply and critical hormones such as human growth hormone. Quality sleep will also help us cope with all of the emotional demands we face every day.
- Lie down to sleep only when you intend on sleeping
- Get up at the same time each day
- Try relaxation techniques before going to bed (relaxing music, reading, etc.)
- High Protein Meals
***Bottom Line: Sleep 7 to 10 hours a night in complete darkness.
