Are these bedtime habits making you gain weight

If you’re taking Phentermine 37.5mg, exercising regularly, and eating well but still not seeing the weight loss results you want, look to your bedtime habits. These habits could easily be causing your waistline to expand without you even realizing it!

Pre-Bedtime (Big) Meal

“I’m not against people having something at night,” notes weight loss expert Peter LePort, MD, the medical director of MemorialCare Center for Obesity at Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center in Fountain Valley, California. “But if you’re having a big meal and then a big bowl of ice cream, you’re going to gain weight.”

If you can’t imagine watching your favorite shows without a snack, schedule more time for exercise during the day.

Mindless Eating

Do you find yourself reaching for that bag of chips or pretzels over and over again as you zone out in front of the tube? Mindless eating is an easy path to weight gain, as you literally have no idea how many calories you’re ingesting. Measure snack portions to avoid this problem in the future.


Is alcohol part of your pre-bedtime ritual? A nightcap every now and then is fine, however daily intake will stifle your weight loss efforts. Alcohol is full of empty calories, and interrupts your sleep pattern besides.

“There’s a problem with sleep and alcohol—you’re going to end up waking up in the middle of the night and not get good sleep,” says LePort.

Not Enough Sleep

Waiting too long to go to bed is another surefire way to gain weight. Most benefit from seven to eight hours of sleep per night, however many still get five or six. According to Harvard University research, women who slept five hours or less a night were 30 percent more likely gain weight. Get some shut-eye to see if you don’t lose weight faster!
