The Connection Between Sleep and Weight!

The intricate relationship between sleep and hormonal and metabolic functions plays a pivotal role in maintaining overall metabolic balance. Your sleep quality and duration, with adults needing at least 7 hours per night, have a direct impact on appetite, hunger sensations, and the body’s ability to store and utilize energy. As Healthy Weight Week approaches, it is a vital reminder to adopt a sustainable and balanced lifestyle to achieve a healthy mind-body balance.

Insufficient sleep or the presence of sleep disorders, like sleep apnea, can disrupt your metabolism, potentially resulting in weight gain and long-term health issues.

Why Extreme Diets Don’t Work: 

Extreme diets, like crash diets and fluctuating diets, don’t work in the long term as they often lead to unsustainable habits and nutritional imbalances.
These practices can contribute to eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder, adversely affecting both physical and mental health. It’s crucial to adopt balanced and sustainable eating habits for overall well-being, including your sleep patterns!

Stress as a Weight Management Factor:

Stress, a common aspect of modern life, plays a significant role in weight management. When the body is under stress, it releases cortisol, a hormone that, in excess, can lead to weight gain, especially around the abdominal area. Elevated cortisol levels not only increase appetite but also promote the storage of fat. Stress is induced in our lives daily, we can combat stress with a healthy diet and a balanced sleep schedule
