Sadly, although many people want to do something
about their weight…not nearly enough people to
achieve their goals.
Now, if you‟re worried that ramping up your daily
calorie-burn is going to take a lot of time and effort,
you can breath a sigh of relief. I'm going to teach you
how to lose weight while you're asleep!
Let me clarify what I mean when I say, “lose weight
while you sleep.” If you can harness your body‟s
metabolism…its calorie-burning capabilities…you
can make it work for you 24 hours a day. (Some
people call this re-setting your “setpoint,” meaning
the rate at which your body burns energy to keep you
at a certain weight.)
Your body‟s metabolism can be trained to burn more
calories while you are active or inactive, while you
are talking to friends or sitting and watching TV. So
it‟s no joke that you can train your metabolic rate to
burn more calories even while you SLEEP so you can
Eat More, Weigh Less!
This book is an update and expansion of Chapter 5
in the Eat More, Weigh Less Diet Laser-focused on
a single key topic – calorie-burning and your body‟s

this essential chapter‟s concept into action.
In it, you‟ll find the latest information to help you
make the most of this effective program and get the
most from your body‟s calorie-burning potential.

(energy) to some degree, even when you're sleeping.
This energy comes from the food you eat and from
nutrients you‟ve already stored in your body.
Scientists call the rate at which calories are burned
while you're at rest your “Resting Metabolic Rate”
(RMR) or “Basal Metabolic Rate” (BMR).
For our friendly discussion, we‟ll call your body‟s
mechanism for burning calories your “Fat Furnace”
because it also can burn your fat away.
If you make a few preliminary adjustments, your Fat
Furnace will work by itself, burning off calories
automatically morning, noon, and (oh yes!)…while
you sleep at night!
The scientific explanation of how we automatically
burn calories is actually quite simple. Although you
can‟t change your hereditary metabolic rate, you can
overcome its affect on your weight to a large degree.
What you eat and how you
exercise can be changed…for

these factors will help your body burn
calories more quickly and help you lose
