Boost Metabolism on the Dark Side


Get this: Research suggests that losing more weight could be as easy as making your bedroom darker at night. In a study with rats (not humans, granted), those that slept in low light conditions gained 50% more weight than those that slept in complete darkness.

Researchers believe it has something to do with your hormone melatonin, which can affect your metabolism.

Until they figure it out, it can’t hurt to turn of the tv when you sleep, buy some window shades, or get a good sleeping mask.

Happy sleeping!
