Combined with a diet rich in fats and sugars, a poor lifestyle can quickly impact our figure and lead us irreparably to obesity. To preserve your health, it is essential to completely rethink your diet and habits. Did you know that your nightly rituals could greatly impact your weight gain? Here are eight bad habits to banish at bedtime. By taking these restrictions into account, you will see that you will lose weight.

Without realizing it, we can have habits that are harmful to our figure. Beyond a copious and not very varied diet, rituals can greatly impact our weight gain. Did you know that your nightly habits could be partly responsible for excess weight gain? And for good reason: at bedtime, our metabolism slows down and thus facilitates the storage of fat. Here are eight nighttime habits to avoid in order to watch your figure. The sixth is the most crucial.

1- Eat too much at dinner
Eating large portions at dinner time is a habit to be avoided if you want to lose weight. And for good reason, shortly before bedtime our metabolism slows down and becomes more inclined to store fat. Lightening your evening meals will allow you to sleep better, to digest more easily but also to lose weight. A small ration of fiber accompanied by sources of protein is quite suitable for a light diet dinner. This habit will allow you to regain your figure without depriving yourself during the day.

2- Waking up late
Those who tend to have a nose dive in the morning prefer to eat breakfast on the run or skip this meal, which is essential for a balanced lifestyle. Setting your alarm clock earlier gives you time to prepare and enjoy your breakfast without constraints. A hearty breakfast eaten in a hurry can make you more prone to cravings. All the more reason to take the time to prepare a highly dietary meal that will keep you satisfied until lunchtime.

3- Not getting enough sleep
Sinking your teeth into the sandman is not only bad for your health but also for your figure. And for good reason, too short a night’s sleep has a major impact on your stress level, which is responsible for increasing levels of cortisol, a hormone responsible for fat storage, as this study suggests. Getting at least seven hours of restful sleep will help you feel better and be less vulnerable to cravings induced by stress and a bad mood.

4- Drink coffee at dinner time
Drinking a small black coffee at dinner time is often a privileged moment for Arabica lovers. However, this ritual is not good for your figure because, as mentioned above, staying up at night is not recommended for weight loss. Prefer herbal teas or verbena to help you fall asleep and relax before going to bed.

5- Not doing sports
A sedentary lifestyle is largely responsible for many of our daily ailments. Joint pain, chronic fatigue, anxiety, are all consequences potentially induced by the lack of regular physical activity. Those who shun exercise burn fewer calories than their sporty counterparts, and therefore store more fat. These are good enough arguments to gradually integrate physical exercise into your routine.

6- Eat before bedtime
If it is harmful to have a big dinner, eating a few minutes before bedtime is just as harmful for your figure. And for good reason: it can affect the quality of your sleep and your metabolism does not eliminate fat as efficiently. To remedy this, eat at least 3 hours before you go to sleep.

7- Using screens before bedtime
This habit is harmful to your quality of sleep and therefore has direct consequences on your figure. Because of their blue light, screens delay your bedtime and reduce the state of relaxation conducive to sleep. To remedy this, banish screens from your bedroom or stop using them at least 30 minutes before bedtime.

8- Snacking
Large, nutrient-poor snacks can have a direct impact on your figure. If you can’t resist a little snack between meals, choose nuts or fruit. A study has shown that a diet enriched with nuts can promote weight loss. These will provide you with the necessary amount of fiber to trigger the feeling of satiety.
