4. Do Intermittent Fasting At Night
This restricted eating schedule keeps your body healthy. It allows for cell repair, but can feel extreme for those who are used to eating throughout the day. When fasting, the human growth hormone increase, allowing muscles to synthesize. Start by creating a no-food window at night that lasts approximately 12 hours.
5. No Phones
Phones and laptop screens emit blue light, which keeps our systems wide awake, signalling that it’s daytime. Switch your phones to “night shift” or set a cutoff time for electronic devices. If you don’t, it’ll increase hunger and resistance to insulin.
6. Drink Less Alcohol
Those cocktails and beers make your body metabolize alcohol instead of putting you into valuable REM sleep. Instead, their alcohol sugars get your liver going, which has to detoxify the liquor and prevents the body from turning fat into ketones, which destroys the fat-burning process. Stick with a glass of wine, and definitely hours before bedtime.
