Health.com: Ditch 5 Pounds Without Trying

Catch Some Z's

"Sleep at least 7 hours a night to help regulate the hunger hormone, ghrelin. Researchers at the University of Chicago found that dieters who spent eight and a half hours in bed lost 55% more body fat than dieters who got five and a half hours of shut-eye. The more sleep you get, the less hungry you'll be, and the more likely you are to lose weight."
