We have all been there, staying up late watching t.v eating high calorie snacks. Little did I know how this can affect my ability to lose weight. In order for my body to reach its full potential, a regulated sleep schedule must be implemented. Surprisingly, I am not the only one that was not getting enough sleep.
"The stress hormone signals your body to conserve energy to fuel your waking hours. Translation: You're more apt to hang on to fat. Researchers found that when dieters cut back on sleep over a 14-day period, the amount of weight they lost from fat dropped by 55%, even though their calories stayed equal. Unfortunately, many people aren't getting enough sleep. In fact, about 30% of adults are sleeping fewer than six hours most nights, according to a study of US adults."
