It sounds unbelievable, but according to research many people of science, sleeping naked, sipping on grape juice and even having a snack can all bolster the metabolic system of the body to help the calorie burn through the night.
Research has found that sleeping in the nude can speed-up nighttime weight loss due to the fact that if the body gets cold at night, it produces a fat that heat-up the body. Isn't that counter-intuitive? In theory, yes, but in fact, by the body doing so, the metabolism increases and burns calories.
Snacking might seem like the wrong thing to do given you're about to lie there for 7 hours, not moving very much, but in fact, as long as for the day you consume below for recommended daily intake of calories (2,500 for men, 2,000 for women) that's not a problem.
Dr. Michelle Braude from thefoodeffect.co.uk says that completely avoiding food before bed time can actually be bad for weight loss.
By going to bed fuller, you wake-up less hungry and therefore less likely to be ravenous and over-eat. Healthy snacks like nuts, fruit and plain yoghurt are a good choice.
Washington State University in the US did some research into this grape juice tool that can be used to control weight loss as you sleep and found that it is in fact, effective.
Grapes, blueberries, strawberries and apples contain a substance called resveratol, which can help convert white fat into 'beige fat', which is supposedly easier to burn.
Avoid the wine (as alcohol does the reverse of what you're trying to achieve) and stick for a less sweeter grape or berry juice variety (as you need to watch your sugar intake for this to work). Grape juice also contain simple carbohydrates, which trigger insulin secretion at night, which is he hormone that controls the body clock.
