07 May Skinny Sleep
“To hell with beauty sleep… I want skinny sleep”
During sleep, a person’s weight and the number of hours he or she sleeps determines how many calories you burn sleeping. Normally, a person burns about 0.42 calories for every pound in one hour of sleep.
For instance, a 150 lb. person burns about 63 calories in one hour. If he or she sleeps for eight hours total, this person burns 504 calories for the whole duration. Just multiply the average rate with every pound of weight and number of hours of sleep.
Sorry I can’t go to the mall with y’all anymore, I need to take a nap! [yawns]
Calories burned during sleep are used to maintain essential functions in the body. Supervising and controlling your internal temperature, repairing cells and pumping blood are some of the nighttime activities that your body naturally does.
