Ever wished you could burn fat just by sleeping? Well, you actually can and are doing it every night! Sleep is a vital part of a happy, healthy life, and if you’re looking to lose a few pounds, here are some reasons you’ll want to pay attention to your sleep more.
Metabolism- our bodies naturally burn calories simply through thinking, body processes, everything requires energy. Your basal metabolic rate (BMR) tells you how much calories you burn from simply existing. This is calculated through your sex, height, weight, and age. By sleeping, your body is burning calories repairing the body and dreaming, generally the more mass you have the more calories you will burn sleeping. As long as you are consuming and burning calories below your BMR, you will be sure to lose weight!
Energy- Of course what sleep is best known for is giving you the energy to give your all the next day. Sleep loss is directly correlated with obesity, as the body’s lack of energy causes increased appetite to curb the lack of sleep. This can easily lead to overeating and indulgence. Lack of energy can also lead to less motivation to exercise. By sleeping and receiving natural energy you will feel less hungry and have more energy and motivation to move around!
