1. Drink Green tea before snoozing off

Sipping a cup of green tea before going to bed will help you sleep faster and sleep deeper. It contains amino acids which relaxes and soothes the body and mind so that you can have proper sleep and wake up with a good mood. Also drinking green tea before going to bed fastens your body’s metabolism and promotes fat burn.

2. Do a little resistance training

Our bodies undergo maximum repair and detoxification while you sleep. This is because of the growth hormone released in the body during sleep which promotes growth and maintenance of muscles and bones. 5-10 minutes of resistance training before you go to bed can really speed up your metabolism and help you with the after-burn!

3. Consume proteins

Studies suggest that people who consume proteinaceous snack in the evening have higher resting metabolic rate. This is majorly because proteins are more thermogenic than carbohydrates or fats which means your body will burn more calories if you consume proteins in evening. Thus, the best time to drink a protein shake is in the evening.

4. Take a good bath/shower and maintain a colder environment in your room

Unlike the gym, where you rather not be under the fan or A/C to keep your body warm and sweat more, bedrooms should preferably be colder as that will attack your belly fat faster. This is because colder temperatures subtly increase the efficacy of body’s stores of the fat that keeps you warm by helping your burn through the fat stored in your belly. Similarly, showering will also help your drop down your body’s temperature which will make you lose belly fat faster.

5. Use mint to lose appetite

Scents have an unusual effect on your appetite. There are certain who can make you feel hungry easily while there are others which make you lose. Sniffing peppermint throughout out the day will make you less hungry. Drink a small cup of peppermint tea or light your room with mint scented candles in the evening so that by the time you’re off to bed, you’re room has the minty smell. This will prevent you from feeling hunger pangs at night and you can easily escape the binge-eating that you usually do at night.

6. Make a routine

Performing the same activity at least one hour before snoozing off to bed can trigger your sleep timing. Be it writing in your diary, reading a book or eating/drinking a special item, or anything which is on this list or even if not, over time your brain will associate the thing(s) you do with bedtime which will fasten your fat-burning sleep journey!
