Want To Lose Weight? Get Sleep!

So many Americans wake up early to hit the gym when many of them would be better off actually getting more sleep! How does a lack of sleep impact your body chemistry? Now, there is clear and significant scientific evidence that shows a very critical component to weight control is avoiding sleep deprivation. In other words, if you want to lose weight, be sure to get enough sleep.

Insufficient sleep promotes a much greater appetite and hunger that results in weight gain, according to Eve Van Cauter, director of the Sleep, Metabolism and Health Center at the University of Chicago. She spent over 15 years studying the topic.

When people are sleepy, they make poor food choices. The study shows that when people don’t get enough sleep they have increased levels of a hunger hormone called ghrelin and decreased levels of the fullness hormone called leptin, which usually leads to binge eating and weight gain. Who knows, the information here may just turn out to be your best dream diet yet!
