Poor Sleep May Derail Your Weight Loss Goals

Are you among the millions of people who resolved to lose weight in 2021? If you’re finding that your weight loss efforts aren’t going as planned, you may want to pay closer attention to your sleep habits. A lack of sleep may up your risk of health conditions like obesity.

While eight hours of sleep is considered ideal, at least seven is recommended to keep the body and mind running smoothly. If you’re sleeping for fewer hours, your risk of gaining weight is increased. You may also be more inclined to consume foods that are high in calories as willpower to refrain from consuming such foods is diminished.

Sleep deprivation will also cause the body to produce greater levels of ghrelin and fewer levels of leptin. These are appetite hormones that may increase the chances of overeating.

Remember that even if you are going to sleep at a decent time, too much tossing and turning as a result of an uncomfortable mattress can also contribute to sleep deprivation.
