Sleep your fat away?? It sounds crazy and impossible especially if you have been battling weight loss, but your secret weapon to shedding pounds could be getting a good night's sleep!
Sleep deprivation leads to a cortisol spike and this can happen when getting less than even 6 hours. It's completely hormonal. Cortisol is a stress hormone that triggers your body to store unwanted fat for energy. It also wrecks our body's ability to process another hormone, insulin, which is required to properly process sugars and starches.
Bottom Line: Bad sleep leads to a super slow metabolism and fat gain!
Prioritize your sleep starting today. Schedule your sleep time just like you schedule your day. Put yourself in the right place to get good sleep by shutting down the TV, cell phones, computers, and replace it with a warm bath, some stretching, or reading a book.
Your room needs to be cool, dark, and quiet. Use ear plugs and eye masks if necessary.
Getting 7-9 hours sleep will not only increase your body's metabolic rate but it will increase cognitive skills, mental clarity, and if you are focusing on leaning out – your metabolic engine to torch those calories!
