A perfect diet and a consistent daily movement training routine are all for nothing if you have poor sleep. When you fall into deep REM sleep your body starts releasing powerful fat-burning growth factors that heal your body including rebuilding muscle, connective tissue, and skin cells.

NIGHT-TIME ROUTINE BASICS

  • Finish your last meal of the day 2 hours before bedtime so your insulin levels aren’t spiked before bed.
  • Growth hormone isn’t released when insulin exists in the bloodstream. Growth hormone is one of the powerful growth factors that burns fat while you sleep. Remember, eating sugar spikes insulin.
  • Institute a 30-45 minute decompression period before bed where you don’t watch television or work on the computer. Research shows that looking at flashing lights like the kind from computer screens, smartphones, and televisions stimulates the brain in a way that may interrupt restful sleep.
  • Supplement with Magnesium 30 minutes before bed. Magnesium is a mineral that is one of the catalysts for the chemical reaction that stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which is the “rest, digest and relax” part of our autonomic nervous system.
