3 Ways to Burn 200 More Calories Passively
Want to burn more calories automatically? Specifically, while you sleep? Here are a few things you can do that will make you burn 200 more calories while sleeping!
Losing weight can get easier when you're boosting your passive metabolism. Do the following and you'll burn up to 200 more calories while you sleep:
Increasing your muscle mass will boost your resting metabolism significantly because your muscles burn 20 percent of your resting calories.
High-intensity cardio keeps your metabolism fast 500 percent longer than a less intense workout. If exercising before bed doesn't keep you up, you can do a mini high intensity aerobic workout before bed so you'll burn more calories while you're asleep.
Buying a better mattress can help you lose more weight because it boosts your sleep quality. According to the Huffington Post, 92 percent of participants agree that your mattress is vital for good sleep. A good mattress can lower your stress, which lowers your fat-gaining cortisol levels.
The Huffington Post also recommends you use a mattress topper to keep allergens and any dust mites in your mattress from making their way into your sheets and your body. The best mattress toppers to use are ones labeled “allergy-proof.”
Don't underestimate the importance of good sleep for your weight loss. Studies found that poor sleep can impede your weight loss by almost 60 percent. If you're not sure what's causing your poor sleep, The Huffington Post says one way you can tell if your mattress is the culprit is whether you toss and turn frequently at night.
You can boost your weight loss and burn 200 more calories by building more muscle, buying a better mattress, and doing a couple of minutes of high-intensity cardio before bed.
