Weight Loss and Sleep

Home » Weight Loss and Sleep

“Cannot fall asleep and/or stay asleep at night? tossing and turning? Feeling un-refreshed in the morning, tired, need mid-day nap? Craving for sweets, coffee and gained weight?”

 A sleepy brain is the brain that craves

With our busy 24/7 lifestyles, many of us simply do not get enough sleep. This has become so common that taking in cups of coffee to get us through the morning has become normal practice.

We are aware that cutting down on calorie intake, eating right and exercising can play a significant role in weight loss. However, are you also aware that getting enough sleep can also play a huge role in weight loss? Lack of sleep will affect your cognitive process skills. The various sleep cycles play key role in your brain memory, thinking, making decisions, learning, concentration; problem solving and alertness, brain fog while trying to work, memory declining, if you not sleep enough theses set of skills will decline. As well as hormonal production, which affect significantly our mood.

Here’s how you negatively affect your eating and activity levels when you don’t sleep.

The Sleep and Weight Loss Connection

Good sleep restores the body’s ability to regulate metabolic functions that affect weight gain. Lack of sleep is related to an increase in hunger and appetite, affecting your peptides Ghrelin and Leptin regulation. These hormones are the ones that are responsible for signals hunger and satiety to the brain. Our tired brains not only long for food, but more specifically longs for sugary, salty, fatty foods. You end up not only eating more and more of unhealthier foods, but your body also finds it hard to digest them. Studies have shown that only one week of reduced sleep can seriously hamper your activity levels and your body’s glucose processing capacity making you resistant to insulin. Resistance to Insulin makes your body to retain more sugar rather than digesting and exhausting it as energy. Research has shown that sleep deprivation and resistance to insulin over an extended period of time increases your chances of having a type 2 diabetes, affecting your blood sugar levels which can lead to overweight and obesity overtime and irregularities in your brain neurotransmitters production.

Working out is a lot harder when you’re exhausted.

When we don’t sleep enough our posture and movement changes, and if your body is unable to repair itself, I don’t think you would want to work out again the following day. You’d probably want to defer to some other time in the future when you would be feeling up to it. If this continues, you might end up not hitting the gym as often as you should. This causes your activity levels to drop, makes you burn less calories and eventually leads to weight gain.

 

Research has shown that 90% of those suffering from insomnia stand a higher chance of developing other health conditions like:

  • Obesity and overweight
  • Diabetes
  • Low immune system
  • High blood sugar

  • An increased risk of cancer
