6 common mistakes you make before going to bed that make you gain weight

What to avoid before bed if you're trying to lose weight.

Eating and exercising right may not be enough to lose weight. If you have been struggling to lose weight and aren't seeing any results, your night time regimen may be to blame.

There may be things you are doing to make sure that you lose weight faster but some things could be leading to an unsuccessful weight loss journey.

1. Waking up too early

You need to have uninterrupted 8 hours of sleep each night. Failure to get enough rest can lead to weight gain due to disruptions in hormones and energy levels.

2. Skipping dinner

Eating dinner past a certain hour doesn't cause more fat to be stored.

Skipping dinner so as to avoid the extra fat risk makes you get hunger spikes the next day which can easily to over eating.

3. Avoiding orgasms

According to Femail orgasms help to relieve stress, anxiety and are great for reproductive health.

It also helps to promote healthy estrogen levels, which can help you maintain a healthy weight.

Don't avoid night time sex just because you're trying to lose weight.

4. Taking alcohol before bed

Alcohol may help you get drowsy faster but it can affect the restorative sleep cycle.

5. Exercising right before going to sleep

This may be helpful to your sleeping routine but it may also lead to disruption of sleep.

6. Lying before a screen before bed

The unnatural light sources affect the production of melatonin which may lead to struggling to sleep.
