If you were to believe everything you read online, you’d think that your body was filled with pollution and destructive chemicals and that there is a massive connection between this toxic body and weight loss. The story is that we breathe in these substances, eat them in our foods and drink them in everything from our specialty coffee to our glass of water.

In fact, this can often be said about the things you do throughout the entire day too. When you wake up, do you see sunlight right away? Do you exercise? Are you active during the daytime? Do you eat nutritious meals? These all play a role. That said, for the purposes of this article, we’re going to focus specifically on what you do right before you hit the sack.
