4. Get in a routine.

Going to bed at the same time every night is an essential part to loosing body weight in your sleep. Sticking to a good sleep schedule makes it easier for your body to maintain continuous weight loss night after night. In some cases this step has been more beneficial than getting the proper amount of sleep.

5. Resist late night cravings.

Eating too many sweet or indulgent treats before bed, and just in general can make falling asleep more difficult. Healthy foods are easier metabolized improving the ability to burn calories while you sleep. Additionally, small amounts of exercise or stretching just before bed can result in increased calorie burn during sleep.

6. Time matters.

It is crucial that you get at least 6.5 hours of sleep every night, but closer to 8.5 hours would be ideal. People who get a good night sleep are more likely burn fat than people who report lack of sleep. The key effects of loosing weight while sleeping happen after 5.5 hours, so sleeping past that point is important to achieve the best results.
