Looking for that weight-loss boost? Scientists might have a new solution for you…
So what did those nice and clever “researchers” discover this time?!
Poor sleep correlates with a big mommas but
Apparently less then 6.5 hours of sleep AND more than 8.5 hours of sleep turnes you into a living, breathing muffin. High quality sleep is associated with lower body fat while poor sleep correlates with a big mommas but.
Constant sleep, every day and particularly a consistent wakeup time…
is most strongly linked with lower levels of body fat, overall fitness and absence of fatigue. So put yourself on a steady sleep schedule ASAP.
33% weight loss success increase
Now, major caveats here: Of course, sleep alone isn’t enough to peel off the pounds; you’ll also want to optimize your diet en get some type of HITT cardio into your routine. That said, it doesn’t matter how many studies follow up on a body of research, it’s an overall proven fact – in millions of cases – that getting an adequate amount of good quality sleep increases the chances of losing weight by 33 percent.
Control appetite and metabolism
Still, researchers don’t know exactly how sleep patterns affect fat percentages, other studies have shown that sleep has an effect on physical activity and the hormones that regulate appetite and metabolism. Apparently, it’s the hormone ghrelin, that controls food cravings, and increases the production of leptin, (satiety signal, helps with over-eating and fat mobilisation)
Weight and fitness levels are just one of many aspects of your health that sleep benefits.
Good quality sleep detoxes the brain, lowers stroke rate and boosts your immune system. Good night folks, sleep tight!
