Lose weight Easily
Is losing weight your number one goal? Setting a goal is great, however break it down into actionable steps so you can start seeing progress right away.
Today’s weight loss tip is so simple, yet most people don’t even consider it when trying to shed pounds. It’s one thing we can’t live without: sleep.
Get More Sleep, Lose Weight
Not getting enough sleep is linked to weight gain and obesity. When you’re tired, you reach for the wrong foods and wind up consuming extra calories. It also makes you hungrier, so you end up eating more than you need:
- A study published in the Wall Street Journal in 2012 found that inadequate sleep triggered increased levels of ghrelin, the hormone that causes hunger, in men.
- In women, it can lower their levels of the hormone GLP-1, which suppresses appetite.
Do Something About It
If you haven’t been getting enough shut eye (around 6-8 hours for adults), let’s change that. You’ll not only improve your weight loss success, you’ll also improve your quality of life and even live longer than those who are sleep deprived.
Tip: Be sure to shut off your computers, cell phones and TV at least one hour before bedtime to drift off to sleep easily.
If there’s one simple step to take right now to lose weight, sleeping enough is it. Try it and watch how quickly things will change!
