5 Bedtime Beverages That Can Help You Lose Weight


Isn't it good to hear that you can lose weight while you are asleep?

There are beverages that can accomplish this, but don't try sugar and caffeine though and you know the reason why.



Here, five beverages you should try at night if you're looking to lose weight.

Milk



A glass of milk (warm or not) can help you sleep more soundly, thanks to a healthy dose of tryptophan and calcium. With more sleep, less cravings for next day that should help you achieve your weight-loss goals. For women hitting the gym, milk’s casein protein is slow to digest, which could help you build muscle all night long. The result: a faster metabolism and easier weight loss.


Grape juice



A small amount of 100% grape juice perhaps, which is all you need before bed that may help you sleep and burn fat. It contains esveratrol, an antioxidant contained in grapes, converts calorie-storing white fat into calorie-burning brown fat. It's a one-two punch. Just don't drink too much of it because resveratrol can exhibit nighttime brain wave patterns similar to people who received small electric shocks all night long.


Chamomile tea



A hot mug of this sleep-inducing tea increases your body's levels of glycine, a neurotransmitter that relaxes your nerves and acts as a mild sedative. Another cool trait of chamomile: It spikes your core body temperature so that your system responds by drastically cooling itself, lulling you to sleep. What's more, chamomile has been linked to improved glucose control and weight loss. Just stay away from the ones that have caffeine and "detox" properties in it.




Kefir



Made from fermented milk, this probiotic-rich beverage works on your gut microbiome to increase levels of healthy bacteria, promote proper digestion, and help you to absorb vitamins and minerals more effectively. The plus side, drinking this yogurt-like beverage can improve your exercise performance.


Soy protein shake



Soy, in milk or protein powder form, is brimming with the amino acid tryptophan. And why is that important? It can improve sleep quality by acting as a precursor to drowse-inducing melatonin. Aside from helping you sleep, the tryptophan compound also decreases cortisol levels to help fight belly fat.
