‘Sleep to lose weight’ may sound unconvincing, but there has been medical evidence to support the correlation. A study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal suggests that lack of sleep contributes to obesity. The Canadian researchers pointed out sleep-deprivation to be one of the reasons for the failure in keeping with weight-loss regimen. They found that fat burning process in sleep-deprived individuals is slow; as a result, they gain weight.
How Sleep affects Weight
Sleeping to lose weight doesn’t mean that you have to increase/decrease your sleep, but make sure that you’re getting a good sleep every day. Besides ensuring that you are sleeping well, you must follow a healthy dietary regimen and engage in physical activity to maintain healthy body weight.
