Burn Fat While You Sleep!
Want to burn belly fat while you sleep? If so, turn to your diet.
What you do or don’t eat before bed can make a significant difference on your rate of fat burning during 8 hours of sleep.
Too many people are quick to assume that all food should be avoided past 8pm.
While you definitely don’t want to be sitting down to potato chips, ice cream, or pizza in the hour or two before you go to sleep, this doesn’t mean a small snack can’t be enjoyed.
Eating the right foods can help stabilise blood sugar, ensuring you get a restful night’s sleep all while using stored fat as fuel.
Let’s take a look at the best foods to eat before bed if you want to torch belly fat.
Of all the protein sources you could eat before bed, cottage cheese may be the best.
This protein source is rich in bone-building calcium, while also high in the slowest digesting form of protein out there – casein protein.
Casein protein is going to take hours to break down, releasing energy to the body slowly as you go about the evening fast.
It’s a high quality source that provides all the essential amino acids you need for tissue rebuilding and fat burning.
If cottage cheese isn’t your thing, consider casein protein directly.
You can purchase this form of casein protein powder at any local supplement store.
Mix this casein protein with some water, cinnamon and stevia (for sweetness) for a nighttime snack.
Cinnamon is also known as fat burning food.
Peanut Butter And Cucumber
Finally, snacking on some nut butter is also a good move before bed, provided you measure out how much you are eating.
The worst thing you can do is just go at that jar of peanut butter with a spoon as you’ll likely take in 400+ calories in the process.
Measure out the nut butter and smear it over one or two pieces of sliced cucumber.
Cucumber is known as a fat burning food so will help you with your belly fat burning goals.
So keep these late-night snacks in mind. Don’t force yourself to go bed hungry any longer.
If you want to burn belly fat, you’ll want to feed your body the right foods to encourage a higher metabolic rate and faster fat burning.
