How to Wake Up Lean

I’ve got an important question to ask you…

How do you wake up every morning?

Are you tired? Bloated? Starving? Groggy? Are you excited for the day ahead? Or just hoping you react quick enough to whatever life throws your way so you avoid getting hit in the face?

Let’s be honest with ourselves. Rolling out of bed, like we haven’t got a clue is no way to start a day… But what if I told you that waking up feeling refreshed, strong, healthy and ready to take on the day is possible… Everyday?

Waking up refreshed

Well I have great news for you! Because it is possible and it’s easier than you could ever imagine! The trick, however, doesn’t take place when the alarm clock wakes you up… It takes place right before bed. All you have to do is check out the rest of this article to find out how…

Get Enough Sleep

We all know sleep is important…

Some of us might not take it as seriously as we ought, but it’s vital for healthy and fruitful living in virtually every area. But did you know that sleep loss negatively affects both your weight and metabolism? It’s true…

One study found that people who get less than 8-hours of sleep per night actually consume about 300 more calories a day. That’s 2,100 extra calories a week just because you want to watch “just one more” episode of your favorite Netflix show (which always turns in to two or three).   

Sleeping weight loss

Lack of sleep appears to adversely affect the hormones in charge of your appetite. One (ghrelin), which resides in your stomach lining, creates hunger sensation; the other (leptin), in fat tissue, triggers feelings of satiation and fullness… When you sleep too little, your body over-produces ghrelin (hunger hormone) and decreases leptin—amplifying your appetite and unstoppable sugar cravings. If there’s ever been a true “recipe for disaster,” that’s the one…

To make matters worse, lack of sleep also affects insulin sensitivity—insulin being that critical component that turns the food you eat into fuel. The less you sleep, the more resistant your body is to insulin. As a result, you’ll store piles of fat on your body instead of burning it.

So I think you get the hint… If you want to wake up feeling lean and giving yourself the best chance to burn fat and look your best, SLEEP MORE. 

Drink Water Before Bed

First, a metabolism crash course: The calories you consume provide your body with energy. How many calories you need per day (which of course impacts how many calories count as too much or too little) is determined by your metabolism.

People with a higher, faster metabolism burn calories more quickly and do not gain weight as easily as others with a slower metabolism. Generally, age and genetics influence metabolism most significantly…

But that does not mean you can’t do anything to help it along. And boosting your metabolism doesn’t have to be difficult either. Next to sleep, drinking water is a surefire way to improve your metabolism…

Drinking Water Before Bed

In fact, according to a recent study published in Frontiers In Nutrition, increasing water intake throughout the day boosts metabolism and makes for an excellent preventative measure against overeating…

Drinking water will also help you sleep better. Have a small glass (you don’t want to wake up in the middle of the night when nature calls) of warm water before bed and you’ll increase blood circulation,  sweat out toxins, and improve hydration—all of which will help you wake up lean.

Eat Something Spicy for Dinner

Have you ever started to sweat after eating something spicy? Well, based on exciting new research you can safely say that sweat is because your metabolic furnace has kicked into high gear… 

See, a chemical—known as capsaicin—contained in most peppers helps accelerate your metabolism and decreases appetite. One study, published in the peer reviewed journal PLOS one, discovered that capsaicin can kick start your metabolism and increase fat-burning processes in your body…

Eating spicy food to lose weight

Plus, some studies indicate that spicy foods will help you feel fuller for longer periods of time. And, even more interesting, when you eat something spicy it causes your body’s temperature to increase, which tells your body to move into “cool-down mode,” and this process in itself helps burn calories.

So start dumping hot sauce on your favorite breakfast lunch and dinner foods to get your metabolism churning and fat burning throughout the day. And make it a point to have some at night. It’ll prepare you for a night of torching fat while you sleep and will even keep those pesky cravings away. With that 1-2 punch you can’t help but wake up lean the next morning!

Take a Probiotic

It seems within the last five years or so everyone started taking, talking about, and debating probiotics… AND FOR GOOD REASON…

Doctors and specialists have found that a healthy gut radiates its good effects out to other parts of our body and life. And it shouldn’t be surprising that this impacts the way you wake up as well…

Gut Health

First, there is a delicate balance of bacteria in your gut that has a major impact on fat loss. And if you don’t take a probiotic, or fail to eat foods that are probiotic heavy (yogurt, sauerkraut) you’ll put your gut health in jeopardy.

Not only will probiotics ensure your gut health is right on point, but they’ll also stimulate feelings of satisfaction after every meal, decrease overall calorie intake, shut down fat storage, and reduce inflammation that can cause other disruptions in the fat-loss process. In fact, a study recorded in the British Journal of Nutrition, found that consistent intake of a particular probiotic, Lactobacillus gasseri, has been demonstrated to reduce belly fat by nearly nine percent, as well as reduce BMI, total body fat, fat around various organs, and waist size…

Other probiotics can prevent weight gain, even in cases of overeating by a thousand calories a day…

All this means that you don’t want to miss out on the unbeatable benefits of probiotics to help regulate and purify your gut and whole body, so you can look and feel great when you wake each morning.

Conclusion

As you might have guessed, there is no magic wand to wave to make you someone who jumps out of bed instead of rolls out of it…

Each choice you make does its part, and when you put them together many wonderful things can start to happen. And if you wake up lighter and brighter, your whole day can be better, happier, and more productive… These ideas will help you do just that…
