Sleep

Sleeping well is the first step for weight loss. It allows the organs in the body to work properly.
The research showed that depriving people of sleep for one night created pronounced changes in the way their brains responded to high-calorie junk foods. On days when the subjects had not had proper sleep, fattening foods like potato chips and sweets stimulated stronger responses in a part of the brain that helps govern the motivation to eat. But at the same time, the subjects experienced a sharp reduction in activity in the frontal cortex, a higher-level part of the brain where consequences are weighed and rational decisions are made.Doctors recommend that each person should sleep for at least eight hours a day.

Weight Training

Weight training is a great way of losing weight. It not only helps in burning calories, but also increases the rate of metabolism. This helps the body to burn fat at a greater rate even hours after the weight training has been done. This process continues even after a person has slept.

Exercise before sleeping

Light exercise prior to sleep is also a great way to keep your metabolic rate high as you sleep. This will help your body to burn calories at an increased rate while you sleep and you will be losing weight as well. Do make sure that the workout is not too intense since research has shown that workouts can take away sleep.

Disconnect:

A Belgian study found that subjects who spent more time watching TV, playing computer games, and using the internet got less sleep and felt more fatigued. To counteract this effect, get into the habit of tuning out at the same time every night, saving the last half hour before bed for relaxing activities like light reading, stretching, or writing in a journal.

Stay Cold

This may be a touch uncomfortable for most people, but it is very effective. Increase the cooling in the night and don't use a blanket. The body will naturally work harder to keep itself warm and a greater number of calories will be utilized during the process.
