CAN YOU LOSE WEIGHT WHILE YOU SLEEP?
Sleep deprivation disrupts your body's ability to process and control weight-related hormones. This causes an imbalance that encourages cells to store excess fat and lowers the body's fat-burning ability. Just nine hours of sleep for three consecutive nights can reverse this, making weight loss easier. Here's how to get enough sleep.
* GET MOVING - Exercising for 30 minutes on most days raises the body's temperature, which gets you in the mood for sleep.
* SOAK IT UP - Take a bath, read a book, listen to music, anything to get you in the mood for a decent night's sleep.
* TiME IT - Set strict bed times and waking times that will allow you to have eight to nine hours sleep.
* CLEAN IT UP - Steer clear of caffeine, sugar and alcohol.
