Nighttime routines to de-bloat and lose weight are always great.
No one wants to feel bloated and heavy when going to sleep. When I feel this way, it makes it that much harder for me to fall asleep and I wake up feeling not so great. Here are 6 things you can do to de-bloat and lose weight.
- Have a smaller, low sodium dinner. Extra sodium and salt stays in your system overnight and makes you feel more bloated and puffier, especially in the morning. No one wants to start their day that way. Have a dinner that contains lean protein and fresh steamed vegetables.
- Try doing a nighttime workout. Studies show that working out at night does not keep you awake like most people think. However, I personally feel I get a boost of energy after I workout. If this is the case, workout an hour or two before bed. This will help you lose weight and make you feel less bloated.
- I know I’ve mentioned this next step before, but drink lots of water throughout the day. Odd as it sounds, drinking water helps flush out excess water and makes you less bloated. Just be sure to stop drinking about an hour before bedtime to keep you from messing up your sleep by going to the bathroom all night.
- Be sure your room is completely dark when going to bed. This helps boost the hormone melatonin. This hormone is natural and helps you sleep and boost weight loss.
- Last but not least, turn down your thermostat temperature to 66 degrees. Studies have shown people who sleep at this temp burn 7% more calories than those that sleep at a temperature or around the temperature of 75 degrees. 7% May not sound like a lot, but any little bit helps.
Never go to sleep or wake up feeling bloated again. Just follow these tips to de-bloat and lose weight, and you’ll sleep great and wake up feeling fantastic!
