Sleep

Remember all those posts where I harp about getting enough sleep? Well, it turns out that there’s science to it after all!

A recent government report states that there are numerous metabolic disorders that can be linked to irregular sleep, not enough sleep, and changing sleeping and waking times.

Sleep is what I always tell people is the missing ingredient from many successful weight loss programs. I know people who are putting in all the work to lose weight except for one thing: getting enough sleep. When I tell them they need to get at least 7 to 7.5 hours a night, they scoff and tell me that they just don’t have the time.

We all have the time. We must make sleep a priority. Not only does it help us lose weight, but getting enough can help us avoid lots of other problems like high cholesterol, hypertension, and high blood sugar.

GO TO SLEEP!
