Sleep to burn fat. Before jumping in to natural fat burning supplements, it’s important to understand just how big a role sleep plays in fat loss and weight management. According to some studies, getting fewer than 5 hours of sleep each night can cause serious hormonal fluctuations, cravings for high calorie foods, and uncontrollable weight gain (i). So, take caution when taking supplements that are highly caffeinated or rich in other stimulants. Restrict consumption at least 8 hours prior to bedtime to ensure minimal disruption to your body’s natural sleep cycle.
