Sarah Wilson tells everyone how to lose weight and make your skin glow:

Tips to sleep better: eat turkey and pepitas to sleep better; please don’t eat avocado, cheese or rice (!) at night (they contain tyramine which blocks melatonin production), nor grapefruit. Go to bed by ten. If you don’t, your body will ache (body repair occurs between 10pm and 2am). And get 7-8 hours. Or you’ll get fat. There that woke you up! Sleep debt causes cortisol to rise, which shuts down metabolism (more on this in a few weeks).

However, the real secret to perfect, age-restoring, fat-fighting, cancer-preventing sleep is….got your fluorescent highlighters ready?…routine.
