Sleep More to Lose More Fat?
If I sleep more…
I can lose more fat!
That’s a dream come true
But is it just a dream?
It’s actually a reality.
There is a tight relationship
between sleep and weigh loss
Here is the explanation:
There are two hormones that play a key factor in this process
- Ghrelin which is responsible for letting your body know when it’s hungry.
- Leptin which is responsible for letting your body know when it’s full.
In other words, Ghrelin says “EAT” and Leptin says “STOP EATING”
But, how is all of this related to sleep?
Lack of sleep can reduce Leptin levels
therefore your body will not get the “STOP EATING” signal
Also, if Ghrelin levels are out of wacked
you’ll feel hungrier than usual
And, since your body is not getting
the much needed rest
You WILL CRAVE foods that serve as stimulants
which are high in sugar and fat
such as cookies, doughnuts and french fries!
if you wanna get cravings under control
and maintain or loose weight…
Get the much needed
