Going to bed on an empty stomach has altered my life. If you have been following along with these weekly articles, you may be wondering “does everything change his life?” Let it be known that I only make articles that are worth your time and effort to read. Everyone’s time is extremely valuable so I want the 5 minutes or so that you use to read these articles are worth it.
There are 2 reasons why you should always go to sleep on an empty stomach. There is probably many more but these 2 reason are the important ones. We will talk about the 2 reasons later in this article, keep reading.
What Is Real Hunger?
Most people aren’t experiencing real hunger. True hunger is felt in the throat, and mouth, not in your head or stomach. Just because you haven’t ate in 5 hours, that doesn’t mean you are hungry, if anything you are probably just bored. Real hunger is going days without food and only water. Due to their body fat percentage, most Americans could probably go months without food and only water.
Disclaimer:If you think going to bed on an empty stomach is going to help you lose weight, you’re wrong. Sure it can help you not gain more weight but it is not a weight loss trick.
Rules To Follow Before Starting:
1.Don’t eat anything solid at least 4 hours before you go to bed.
- this makes sure your body has done all the digesting of food it needs to do before sleeping.
2. Drink plenty of water
- Often times we think we are hungry when we are just really thirsty. Our body needs water more than it needs food.
The 1st Reason To Fast Before Bed
It helps you have more vivid and lucid dreams. YES, lucid dreams. To have a lucid dream, it’s all about awareness. That’s why if you search up on the internet how to lucid dream, most articles and videos will say tell you to keep a dream journal to keep track of the dreams. The point of this is to create an awareness before sleeping.
When you become aware before you go to bed, this awareness transcends into your sleep and then your awareness appears in your dreams. So now you are able to control your dreams due to your awareness.
Going to sleep on an empty stomach makes you more aware before you go to sleep. This small hunger makes you become aware of your body and your entire being. Hunger naturally stimulates the production of DMT(Dimethyltryptamine), the spiritual molecule, or in other words, the most psychedelic chemical in the world. This is why sometimes your dreams go haywire because you are dreaming on DMT. Eating before you go to sleep takes the energy away from the brain and puts it to your digestive system to break down the food. This will take away your ability to have amazing dreams.
Always having amazing dreams will make you excited to go to bed.
Ever since I started going to bed on an empty stomach, my dreams have become so vivid and clear that I sometimes confuse my dreams with reality. Sometimes I’ll remember the dream like it actually happened in real life. My dreams have become so clear that it is often hard to separate the dreams from reality.
Dreaming is cool and is one of many things that separate us from animals.
The 2nd Reason To Fast Before You Go To Bed
This 2nd reason is the most important reason to go to sleep on an empty stomach. Going to sleep on an empty stomach promotes good health, healing, and repairing of the cells and organs. I always thought that you need to eat a lot of clean food to be healthy but this is not true at all.
How can your body heal itself and fight off diseases if it’s using all the energy to break down food you just ate.
Think about this: When you have gotten sick before, were you more hungry or less hungry? I can guarantee you were less hungry. This is because your body is telling your mind that it doesn’t need more food to digest, it needs a break from food so the body can get rid of the sickness. Taking the energy away from the digestive system and focusing on healing the body.
If you go to sleep an hour after eating food, sure you may have gotten 8-9 hours of sleep but you wake up more tired. This is because while you were “resting” your body wasn’t, because it was breaking down the food you just ate. This is why it’s important to not eat at least 4 hours before you go to bed, so your body can get the rest it needs.
Most people plug in their phones to charge before they go to bed. Now what if while your phone was charging, the screen was on making phone calls, answering texts, taking pictures, and other things. When you wake up, is your phone going to be at 100% if all night it was being used? Definitely not. Your body is the same way! The body needs time for repair and healing. Ever since I started to go to bed on an empty stomach, I wake up refreshed and never tired, and I always feel at 100%, never sick.
This is the only reason we are designed to sleep. To heal the body. If sleep wasn’t designed for healing, and repair then the universe would have made us where we are constantly awake. We sleep not because we are tired per se, we sleep because the body needs time to refresh the system, heal cells, and fight off potential diseases like cancer.
According to Dr. Maiken Nedergaard, during sleep our brains flush out toxins from the body. The flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain increases dramatically, washing away harmful waste proteins that build up between brain cells during waking hours.
So go to bed on an empty stomach and you will feel much healthier and happier.
