Who doesn’t want to lose weight in their sleep?
While we are sleeping, our body is busy digesting our food, healing our bodies so that when we wake up in the morning we feel lighter and refreshed.
But of course, this all depends on the foods you ate the day before.
So choose your foods carefully and your body will get hard at work burning fat while you are sleeping.

I have carefully selected all the following 8 ingredients to help you burn fat, speed up your metabolism, reduce your cravings and fill you up.
Weight Loss Ingredients To Boost Your Metabolism
Here are the 8 foods that burn fat while you sleep:
Avocados are loaded with healthy Omega 9 fatty acids, speed up the conversion of fat into energy and boost the rate of metabolism.
Coconut is rich with medium chain triglycerides which increase the liver’s rate of metabolism by up to 30 percent.
Coconut also helps keep you full so you’re less likely to overeat unhealthy food. Coconut oil also improves the functioning of the thyroid gland.
Lemons are excellent liver detoxifies, and alkalize our body. They may seem acidic based on taste but in the process of being metabolized by the body, they actually alkalize our bodily fluids and tissues.
Maintaining the health of the liver is also essential so that the body can digest and burn fat, since the liver is one of the organs responsible for these functions.
Many studies show that grapefruit is an excellent weight loss food. In one study at Johns Hopkins University, women who eat grapefruit daily, shed almost 20 pounds on average in only 13 weeks, without changing anything else in their diet or lifestyle.
I don’t usually enjoy grapefruit but if I add it to a smoothie and adds a delicious tang. (See recipe below)
For those who don’t want to eat grapefruit, you can get all the benefits from grapefruit without the taste by using grapefruit powder. I actually added both grapefruit and grapefruit powder to my smoothie for extra benefits. You can get grapefruit powder and read about some amazing health benefits here.
NOTE: Some people taking certain medications can’t eat grapefruit so please check your medication and you can substitute orange for the grapefruit in this recipe.
Green tea is amazing for fat busting. EGCG increases the rate at which fat is burned in your body. Research at Tufts University indicates that EGCG in green tea, activate fat-burning genes in the abdomen to speed weight loss by 77 percent.
Green Tea also keeps energy stable by balancing blood sugar levels. EGCG improves insulin use in the body to prevent blood sugar spikes and crashes that can result in fatigue, irritability, and cravings for unhealthy foods.
Leafy greens are very high in fiber, which can help make you feel full for longer, as well as improving your digestion. They are very low in calories and carbohydrates, and can be eaten in large amounts during almost any kind of diet.
Leafy greens also have a low glycemic index, which means that they hardly affect blood sugar levels and can even help lower the effects of other foods when they are eaten together. This effect allows you to avoid blood sugar crashes as well as preventing diabetes, improving the chances of sticking to your diet and losing more weight.
And I do know how hard it is to eat leafy greens, especially if you’re not used to them. So why not add them to a smoothie? If you add them to a sweet smoothie you will not taste the greens at all. (I promise). You can try my recipe below.
Dates are a powerhouse of nutrients and fiber which help to fill you up and give you enough energy until your next meal – so they keep you fuller for longer. They are also nature’s candy which means they satisfy your sweet tooth and are a great replacement for refined sugar which causes harm and does no good.
Oats are loaded with fiber that decreases your appetite by making you feel full so you can go for long periods of time without eating while keeping your energy levels high.
If you are using oats in a smoothie, you don’t need to cook oats because they are pre-cooked. That means you can use your oats straight out of the packet. Just chuck them in your blender. If you’d like to learn more about how to use oats in your smoothie click here.
You can turn your smoothies into a complete meal by adding oats to them. If you leave out the oats, you are more likely to get hungry and need something else to eat.
If you don’t eat oats, or you don’t have a powerful enough blender to blend the oats so they are smooth, you can choose one of the 20 meal replacement fillers to add to your smoothie.
I am on a grain free diet right now, so I would add 1 more avocado to this smoothie to make it a complete meal.

I have been waiting such a long time to share this smoothie recipe for weight loss with you. This is because I’ve been testing this recipe for ages and I am so excited it’s finally ready.
Every time I started drinking this smoothie, the next day I had lost 2 pounds. I tested this smoothie numerous times especially after a weekend indulgence and it always had the same effect.
I then went away for 3 weeks and gained 7 pounds. Now I’m back and the very first thing I wanted to do was making another batch of my weight loss smoothie and share this recipe with you ASAP!
“This doesn’t taste like a weight loss smoothie – it is so tasty”
Another reason I kept ‘testing’ this recipe is that it tastes absolutely gorgeous. It’s definitely one of my top favorite smoothie recipes ever.
I would be quite happy if I only had to drink this smoothie for the rest of my life. It’s honestly that good.
This smoothie does not taste like a weight loss smoothie.
It is creamy, luxurious, with a fresh citrus undertone and just the right balance of sweet and sour.
It’s not overly sweet, and even though I have a really sweet tooth, the taste of this smoothie suits me perfectly.
I’m sure you’re going to love it.
And if the food that is good for us happens to help us lose weight and tastes amazing, then that’s got to be a bonus?

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
