Studies have proven that sleep is directly linked to weight gain. Let’s find out how.
Are you one of them who stay up all night? Are you having weight gain issues?
Your answer is simple. Sleepless nights are doing this to you.
According to a study, if a person doesn’t get a good 7-8 hours of sleep per day, the chances of obesity increase.
Why Do We Gain Weight?
The main culprit is the deposition of fat that isn’t used up as energy. The more you tend to skip sleep, the more you are likely to eat junk. This is because our body will keep sending us signals that it needs food as long as you are awake. But when you go to sleep, all the body processes come to rest.
You’re more likely to choose fat and carb filled food during the wee hours. This is a fact, guys! So if you’re planning on a nighter, make sure you have stacked healthy fruits and veggies. To be honest, just sleep and avoid food after 8 at night.
The food that you eat then converts into fats and gets deposited under your skin. Since you won’t be working out before sleeping, the calories won’t be converted into energy. And here you are, worried about increasing weight gain.
Ways to reduce weight just by sleeping
Fun fact! A person tends to burn fat during cold winter nights. This is because our body makes sure it I warm and thus burns fats. Don’t forget to turn down that heater before you go to sleep the next time.
