5. Eat before Bed

How many times have you heard how bad it is to eat before bed, and that you really shouldn’t eat after 8pm at all if you want to lose weight. Well, let me tell you this is not the case! In fact, you really should eat something before you go to bed. This all comes back to the slower metabolism idea that I covered in #1.

Not eating for 10-12 hours will slow down your metabolism, forcing it to burn fewer calories than it otherwise would. Plus, at least for me, I have a horrible time trying to sleep when my stomach is eating itself because I am so hungry!

See, you can eat more and weigh less! Now if only we could sleep less (while still feeling well rested) and add a couple extra hours to our day… Does this make you want to start eating more too?!
