Can sleep make you slim?

December 18th, 2012 | no comments

How many hours of zzz’s did you get last night? An important question to ask yourself because a small new study suggests that getting more sleep may help reduce overeating. Researchers also found that the hormonal process through which sleep affects eating is different for men and women.

According to the study in a recent issue of the journal Sleep, the findings suggest that overeating due to a lack of sleep is related to increased appetite in men (due to increased levels of the hunger-stimulating hormone ghrelin) and reduced feelings of fullness in women (due to the hormone GLP-1).

The bottom line: Sleep is NOT a luxury, it’s a MUST to your bottom line. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night and you’re on your way to a slimmer YOU!
