Sleep Matters

We all know that sleep makes us feel great, but new research shows that only 2 nights of sleep deprivation (defined as 4 hours of sleep) changes your body’s hormonal chemistry to:

  1. increase your appetite
  2. impede your satiety signals (that means it takes more food to make you feel full)
  3. cause carbohydrate cravings

Even if you get more than 4 hours of sleep regularly, a small sleep deficit may add up over time, so make sleep a priority if you are trying to lose weight!

Now isn’t that better than having to exercise more?
