Sleep: How Important and Your Weight Loss Secret Weapon
Who wouldn’t give just about anything to get a big more sleep? There just isn’t enough time in the day to get everything done and unfortunately, sleep is the one thing that people unanimously sacrifice. In addition to depleting your energy, lack of sleep also affects your ability to lose weight1.
In one study, participants who were deprived of a full night’s sleep reported less weight loss than those who slept more, even though both groups consumed the same amount of calories. Not only that, but those who got more sleep reported feeling less hungry throughout the day. Sleep is also necessary for your body to recover from exercise2. A state of deep sleep is when your body releases the growth hormone that allows it to repair muscle and recover from the day. Without that adequate sleep and reparation, the body isn’t able to lose weight as easily.
