Lights Out : Lose Weight
We’ve read this in a few places and are trying really hard to get 7-8 hours of solid sleep in every night, but its true – lack of sleep really does contribute to weight gain – even from the – “if I stay up too late after dinner I’ll get hungry again and will want a snack” phenomenon. Try to shoot for at minimum 7.5 hours of sleep a night. Ideally, don’t set an alarm to wake up at a specific time, but a timer for 8 hours, if you can. We do this every weekend morning and other days when we don’t have to wake up at a specific time.
Are you struggling with sugar and carb cravings that seem to just take over? Are you trying to lose excess body fat but feel it’s an uphill battle when foods you know you shouldn’t eat are practically screaming at you to eat them? Do you feel like you just can’t seem to get your body to burn fat no matter how much you exercise, what diet you try or what you’re eating? We’ve talked about the sugar and carb craving hurdle before when I introduced my 21-Day Sugar Detox Manual (eBook available for download here), but this time I’m going to talk about a way to work on getting your body out of fat storage mode and kicking cravings that actually DOESN’T INVOLVE FOOD AT ALL. It’s one simple rule for attacking your cravings and one big reason why your body wants to store fat at it’s root. Are you ready for this?
TURN THE LIGHT’S OUT! You heard me. Turn the lights off. Get some shut-eye. Hit the hay. Give up the ghost. GO TO SLEEP!
