Sleeping Nude Can Boost Metabolism and Could Help With Weight Loss
Sleeping in cooler temperatures, which can be facilitated by sleeping naked, can increase the body’s production of brown fat. Brown fat is a type of fat that generates heat by burning calories. It’s often referred to as “good fat” because it has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity, boost metabolism, and potentially contribute to weight loss. Studies have shown that people who sleep in cooler temperatures, around 66 degrees Fahrenheit (19 degrees Celsius), can increase their brown fat production by up to 42%.
This increase in brown fat can help the body burn more calories while at rest, which can contribute to weight loss over time. In addition, better quality sleep, which is arguably easier to achieve naked, can also improve metabolism and promote weight loss. Poor sleep has been linked to decreased levels of leptin, a hormone that regulates appetite and energy expenditure, and increased levels of ghrelin, a hormone that stimulates appetite. This can lead to overeating and weight gain over time.
