"Do not forget to check out the final tip, an unusual trick to flipping your natural snooze switch."
Losing weight is not as difficult as it is considered by many people. It's something that can be easily achieved through simple lifestyle changes and mindfulness. it is certainly not something that you need to lose sleep over. Speaking of which, let's look at several minor changes you can make before you go to sleep to give you immediate effect and lasting results for weight loss. But, what does your bedtime habits got to do with weight loss? Everything. Your bedtime habits not only set the tone for the next day's diet routine but also set the tone for your body's metabolism to work efficiently for maximum weight loss. That’s why, we bring to you 8 bedtime hacks that will help you lose weight and sleep better throughout the night.
1. SKIP ANY MEAL 3 HOURS BEFORE YOU HIT BED:
Most of the unhealthy snacking typically happens during supper or post dinner. Either we gorge on some comfort food or we succumb to large servings of desserts that offer no nutritional value but add considerable calories.
If you are sincere about losing weight then you must give up on this untimely snacking. The biggest problem with snacking is that as soon as you take a small bite, it gets difficult to control your portion and you end up eating a full meal instead.
Result, you end up gaining excessive calories and a bloated tummy for the morning. It also impacts bowel movement as there is barely any fiber in such food. As a thumb rule, restrict consumption of any food after 7 PM in the evening so that your body gets at least a 3 hour gap before the last meal and going to bed. Resist any temptation you might get during this period.
Eventually this will turn into a habit and you wouldn't feel like eating yourself and enjoy the lightness before going to bed. To make sure you stay full longer, consume high-protein food, such as fish, turkey, and chicken, during dinner that will keep you satiated longer.
2. RELAX BEFORE HITTING THE BED
Yes, before you sleep, do something that helps your mind and body to relax. You might choose to read a novel or get a warm bath or simply sit down and meditate.
De-stressing before bed ensures that you don't get worked up or worried at the slightest of agitation or problems the next day. Typically, the reason we lose discipline in our diet routine is because we get stressed or worried and push aside healthy food for a round of comfort food.
This short-term food outburst derails all other efforts put into the routine.
De-stressing before going to bed is an excellent way to calm your nerves so that minor worries do not derail your diet routine. Additionally, de-stressing calms your nerves and boosts metabolism that further aids in weight loss.
3. SWITCH OFF ALL LIGHTS BEFORE SLEEP
Research has found that women who sleep in dark rooms are less likely to be overweight than those who sleep with lights on. The reason behind this is linked to the production of melatonin, an important sleep production hormone. This production is compromised when we allow too much light in our bedroom while we sleep. As per our natural habitat, the human body was designed to sleep in complete darkness. But in high-paced urban cities we are surrounded by lights throughout the night. In fact, we have slowly learned to sleep with the lights on. This is a bad habit. Not only does it hurt your weight loss effort but also disturbs your sleep pattern. Ensure that you create complete darkness in the room before you sleep so that the body can produce melatonin efficiently, and your sleep doesn't get interrupted while your eyes get complete rest.
4. DO NOT USE YOUR PHONE BEFORE SLEEPING
Texting or going through your mails or your favourite social media websites one last time before going to bed is an extremely harmful habit. First, the bright light from the screen hampers your body's sleep, tires your eyes, and stresses your brain. Second, any negative comments or feedback may drive you to stress-eat or secrete harmful chemicals that may decelerate your metabolism. Just relax before going to bed. Cut off from the world and wait for it oi reveal itself the next day when you are charged up after considerable rest. There's anyways only as much you will be able to achieve before going to bed. The world can wait.
5. PLAN YOUR NEXT DAY'S MEALS
Since there's so little time in the morning to get ready for work or head out for classes, it is always a good idea to plan out your meal plan for the next day before you go to bed. And, if necessary, make preparations before you snooze off to get a head start. Usually in the morning, when you are running short of time, it gets difficult to keep your mind centered on your diet routine while the clock is ticking away. You just grab the most easy-to-prepare food and head out. Mostly these types of food are the sugar rich/high carb or plain unhealthy and high calorie ones. So, it is always a great idea to know what you want to eat the next day so that you have clarity when you wake up.
6. HAVE SEX
A great way to end the day is to complete it with sex. Sex, by itself, not only helps in burning considerable calories but also helps you relax and de-stress. Additionally, it improves your bond with your partner and makes you feel emotionally secure that allows you to sleep better. Sex also boosts your metabolism that aids in further weight loss.
7. TAKE A LONG WALK
Another great way to both de-stress and burn calories is to take a long walk before going to bed. A long walk alone or with your partner can help you clear your head and build the resolve for your diet routine for the next day. However, do ensure that you do not snack during this walk or else it would be counter-productive. The gentle exercise also stretches out the body one last time before it goes for rest, allowing it to burn calories faster.
8. THE PRIMAL SLEEP SYSTEM

Feeling tired, forgetful and fatigued all the time? Then you may be sorely lacking the type of deep, quality sleep your body and mind need.

#1 muscle that eliminates joint and back pain, anxiety and looking fat
I bet you can’t guess which muscle in your body is the #1 muscle that eliminates joint and back pain, anxiety and looking fat.
This “hidden survival muscle” in your body will boost your energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when unlocked.
If this “hidden” most powerful primal muscle is healthy, we are healthy.
P.S. Make sure you check out the next page to get to know the 10 simple moves that will bring vitality back into your life!
The #1 "bodyfat-eating" hormone...
To begin, I apologize for the dark nature of this of this below information.
However I promise what you'll discover today will be completely worth it.
Imagine a rotting corpse draped over your body from head to toe...
...suffocating tissue, restricting blood flow, damaging joints and infecting your healthy cells.
Shockingly, that nightmare is a reality for most:
64% of women and 74% of men carry too much body fat according to the National Institutes of Health.
It's choking their organs, assaulting their metabolism and sucking their energy dry.
But here's the worst part:
For most, this body fat has become "calorie-resistant":
It's completely unaffected by even the strictest diets... and most intense exercises.
This zombie fat is essentially... "dead tissue".
That's important for those who have 10, 25 or 50 or more pounds to lose...
AND for those who aren't technically overweight, but have what's called "pocket obesity"...
...unsightly patches of fat that cling to specific places, like:
just above your hips, lower belly, where your butt and legs meet... and even arms, neck and face.
However, there's good news:
Obesity researchers have now discovered a "metabolic jumper cable":
It jolts dead body-fat back to life.
This allows your metabolism to burn it as calories and re-energize your entire body.
First though, here's the #1 reason why body-fat becomes calorie-resistant:
It lacks blood flow. This has 3 effects:
- Not enough oxygen or nutrients reach fat cells, so they become unresponsive..
- Released fat can't be sent to other tissues to be burned, so fat cells suck it back in...
- 3) Metabolic hormones carrying the "burn calories" message don't reach the fat cell...
All this means one thing:
Your body can't transform into energy, the 135,000+ of calories the average person stores as fat!
You become a metabolic zombie: NO energy to think. NO energy to move. NO energy to motivate.
Update: calorie-resistant body-fat can be now removed...
The discovery of this "metabolic jumper cable" can now reverse this process:
- It wakes up un-responsive body-fat with a powerful calorie-burning hormonal jolt....
- It pops open fat cells, sucks out the fat, sending it off before its yanked back in...
- It shuttles fat to your brain, heart, lungs, kidneys - even your bones - to be burned as energy.
Not only do those layers of "zombie fat" start coming off, but your entire body just works better.
Plus, as your whole body burns more calories, those patches of pocket obesity whittle away.
This "metabolic jumper cable" isn't any exercise, machine or pill.
It's a little-known, calorie-burning hormone we all have... just waiting for the right spark to come alive.
It's not thyroid, leptin, ghrelin, insulin, adiponectin, HGH or any other "fat loss" hormone you may know.
And on this next page, you'll find out precisely how to unleash its calorie-burning power:
How to Wipe Out Chronic Inflammation (Free Book)
In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a debilitating condition-and you"re not sure what the culprit is-now's the time to find out...while you can still do something about it!

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?
Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works.
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
Watch Liz’ free presentation. It’s packed with revolutionary weight loss information—information that works. Because it’s based on how nature.
Click the button only if you want to wear smaller clothes, breathe easier, move more freely and just plain feel better.

In the years that I've been working on this website project I've come across some amazing resources by some very special people. I'd like to share them with you here.
NOTE: I update these links often so please check back to see what's new!
1) Everyone knows green smoothies are healthy right? Have you heard of a “red” smoothie? If not, check out this story…
2) Forget what you've read about 10-day lemonade cleanses, 7-day detoxes with green juices and Gwyneth's gruel. All you need to do, and this is perfect for Saturday or or anytime really, is a simple 1-day cleanse.
3) This “hidden survival muscle” in your body will boost your energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when unlocked.
4) I thought it was virtually impossible for a website to be able to tell me anything even a little bit insightful after only submitting my name and date of birth... I was wrong!
5) Turmeric is amazing. The problem is - It's hard to absorb!
6) Wonder why your stomach still sticks out even though you're hammering the core exercises every day? It's a common myth that bulging belly is due to weak abdominal muscles.
7) Even if you're the most active of athletes, you may still suffer from tight hip flexors due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair.
Enjoy! Let me know how these work out for you. And if you run across anything I've missed please let me know.
