There is a “miracle” food, ideal for an evening snack, that a study has shown activates the metabolism so that you burn fat while you sleep!

It sounds like a dream: To eat something before you go to sleep and it helps you burn fat during your sleep! Possible;

We all know that evening cravings are rarely a good thing – especially if they involve foods rich in carbohydrates and starches. But this does not mean that we should go to bed fasting.

According to a study by Florida State University , there is a food that is recommended for consumption before bed, as it can have a positive effect on metabolism . What is this? The cottage cheese.

The study showed that consuming about 30 g. of this protein half an hour before sleep , the metabolism is activated and works while you sleep. And although the sample studied was relatively small and included only 20-year-old active women, it was the first time that it was shown that a food (and not, for example, a protein shake or a supplement ) can play such a role.

Don’t worry if you’re not a fan of this cheese. There are many more protein options you can include in your evening snacks, as suggested by weight loss specialist nurse Bridgette Agee , who participated in the above study. ” Try lean meats like chicken and roast beef, but also tofu, hard-boiled eggs or a handful of almonds , which can keep you full in the evening. These foods will provide the energy needed by the metabolism and thus help you lose weight .’

She explains that unsalted almonds and walnuts are among the healthiest nuts and are recommended for people who are lactose intolerant or who are generally not fans of dairy. These fruits are rich in good fats and good sources of protein and nutrients such as vitamin E, selenium and magnesium. It is enough that they are consumed in moderation (i.e. a handful), as they also have plenty of calories.

If you still eat dairy, you can choose a small piece of mozzarella . The calories in this cheese are limited, but it is rich in protein, calcium and vitamin D, without having many carbohydrates.

Of course, the key to losing weight is reducing the calories you consume throughout the day, eliminating unhealthy snacks and making good meal planning. As Agee says, “By eating a small meal of pure protein and vegetables or fruit every three to four hours, you give your metabolism the energy it needs to ‘work’ and burn fat.” By planning your meals, you increase the chances of making healthy choices throughout the day, avoiding “dangerous” snacking.”
