Why Sleep Can Help You Lose Weight
When it comes to weight loss, you wouldn’t be incorrect to think that the food you are eating needs to be addressed. But what if we told you how important a deep night's sleep is for regulating your weight?
Missing out on deep, restorative sleep can hold you back from healing chronic disease and living a happy and healthy life.
We are beginning to become more aware of how sleep loss affects our body's normal physiological functions, which you might not notice short-term. However, when they are continuously disrupted for years, your body will begin to suffer. Without enough sleep our hormones and metabolism are altered and retaining weight is a side-effect of this.
One of the first hormones to contribute to weight gain is know as ghrelin, the hormone that tells you when you are hungry. Ghrelin is produced while we are sleeping, so when we aren’t getting enough sleep, this hormone becomes imbalanced and can lead to an overstimulation and overeating during the day.
Our dear friend Jon Gabriel is an expert in this area, which is why we have invited him to be part of our 10 Day Sleep & Stress Guided Program.
