We are all aware of the advantages of losing weight and being well hydrated. Only if we know how important it is to stay hydrated, drinking enough water will not be an option.

Aside from all the other known benefits, we can also lose weight by sleeping well regularly. Research conducted recently showed that a number of hours we sleep can influence once chance of gaining weight. This means that the lesser hours we sleep the higher our risk of gaining weight. The relationship between how long we sleep and gaining weight has a lot to do with two hormones that influence our appetite. These hormones are called Leptin and Ghrelin. Leptin is responsible for controlling our appetite while Ghrelin is responsible for making us feel hungry. Each time we do not sleep well our Leptin level drops and the Ghrelin levels go up.
When don’t get enough sleep, it makes us feel very hungry. It can influence the type of food we eat and how we eat them. Lack of sleep raises our hunger levels and makes us crave for sugary foods. Most of these foods do not contain the necessary nutrients the body needs and our body easily converts sugar to fat. Consuming food items that are high in sugar can affect our blood glucose level making it unable to produce insulin. If this persists for a long time, it could lead to diabetes. All this explains why not sleeping up to the recommended 8 hours, makes it difficult for you to lose weight.

This does not mean that sleeping right make you lose weight, you should also include exercise, eating a balanced diet and constant exercise.

Sleep is when you are unconscious of happenings around you. After every workout your muscles tear, sleeping after a workout helps the body repair these torn tissues and muscles, build new muscles which will make use of the calories from your fat storage.
Each time you sleep, you make it possible for the body to repair those muscles quickly. Now if you don’t get the adequate amount of sleep, your body will not be able to repair the torn muscles, your mood will be affected and this may deter you.
In order for you to sleep better, I will suggest that you should not engage in any work out when it is almost time for you to sleep. This is because after every workout, the body releases endorphins, the hormone increases your energy level which may make it a bit difficult for you to fall asleep. Stick to the bedtime you have set for yourself. When you lie down, you are supposed to relax. Make sure you use good beddings so you can fall asleep easily.
It is necessary for you to take a 48-hour break from your workouts most especially if you do full body workouts. This schedule helps you attain better and fast results. Never forget that rest is very necessary and sleep is a great form of rest. After every workout, you should not find it difficult to sleep and rejuvenate the body.
