A good night’s sleep

Lack of sleep could well be sabotaging your efforts to lose body fat. Check out this Sleep guide to see why. And if eating a dozen sausages before bedtime doesn’t help (see video above), then try implementing a pre-sleep routine and aim to get 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep every night:

– Establish and stick to a regular bedtime.

– Turn off your electronic screens (TV, PC, iPhone, etc.) 1 hour before bed.

– Make sure your bedroom is comfortable, cool, and as dark as possible.

– Don’t use your bedroom for working.

– Avoid large meals, caffeine and alcohol close to bedtime.

– Practice relaxation techniques like deep breathing or meditation.

– Try herbal teas e.g. camomile.
