Sleep Deprivation Hinders Fat Loss and Weight Loss

Sleep deprivation, or sleep debt, will hinder your attempts to reach your fat loss and weight loss goals. You need to exercise smart, eat healthy and take care of your body. That includes getting enough sleep each night. Sleep debt takes a toll on your health and appearance.


Being "too busy" all the time is not good. Sometimes we use it as an excuse to not do the things we should---like exercise!

When you wake up during the night because you can't sleep, you are likely to eat when you should be sleeping. And, you will throw your metabolism "out of wack."

Researchers have found that the less sleep the test subjects got, the higher their body fat. The shorter sleep time altered the subjects hormone levels, energy decreased and appetite increased.

And we already knew that decreased energy affects your workout performance. What's enough sleep? The general rule is 8 hours of sleep a night. Some may need more sleep or a little less than 8 hours. Don't sabotage your exercise program and fat loss goals by not getting enough shut-eye.

If you do happen to wake up at night, eat an apple instead of ice cream.

Exercise consistently, eat healthy and get the sleep you need to keep your body healthy!
