Your body is always burning calories to keep your involuntary nervous system working—pumping blood, breathing, digesting food, and all the other life-sustaining jobs it performs.

With some minor tweaks to your daily habits, you can unleash the full potential of your body’s natural fat-burning ability while you sleep. 

Follow these simple suggestions from nutrition and health experts to maximize fat burning while you snooze and improve the overall quality of your sleep.
