It is known already that not sleeping enough may cause weight gain even if we are struggling to lose it.
First, when we are tired, our brain is not able to make clear and healthy decisions. We may eat more, take more sweets, skip the exercise because too tired etc.
However, there are certain biological mechanisms that are affected by not sleeping enough.
Studies show that loosing excess weight helps to improve the quality of sleep, and opposite – sleeping well helps to lose weight.
Most people need between 7 and 9 hours of sleep each night.
Have a good sleep!
