It's a new year and you're trying your best to lose weight. You've made a diet plan for your weight loss, and you've made time for regular exercise as well. So if you're still struggling to see a change on the scale, you may be wondering what else you can do. If you've already started with the weight loss basics - i.e. healthy diet plan and exercise - then you're next step may actually be getting more sleep.
While rest may not seem like a major contributor to your weight, sleep is actually an essential function that our body uses to run smoothly. As a result, good sleep can help us lose weight - and lack of sleep can lead to weight gain. Here are three big reasons why this can happen:
These three key things highlight exactly why poor sleep and weight gain share a connection - and why healthy sleep and weight loss also share a connection. Sleep truly is as important to weight loss as diet and exercise. Unfortunately, currently as many as 30% of adults are sleeping fewer than six hours most nights. So this year, as you focus on healthy changes one of the best ways to lose weight, will be to consider whether or not you’re getting enough sleep (i.e. 7 to 8 hours minimum). And not only will sleep support your weight loss - but you’ll feel more energized, too!
