Sleep & Impact On Weight


Have you recently been struggling to get the right amount of sleep at night? Have you also noticed that your pants are starting to fit a bit more snugly? Those suffering from insomnia, chronic pain, nightmares, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and other sleep issues may notice that they are putting on weight, too. Unfortunately, this isn’t some random coincidence, and those lacking sleep can expect weight gain may follow. As a recent Psychology Today article discussed, when you sleep less, you generally weigh more.

There are many potential factors that keep someone from getting the right amount of sleep at night. However, those who are lacking the right amount of sleep do seem to have something in common – food cravings. And, as a recent study found out, those food cravings generally include fatty or sugary options. In fact, it is reported that the average intake of extra calories in someone who has only gotten four hours of sleep is a whopping 385 calories. So, figuring out a way to improve your sleep habits can go a long way towards helping you lose weight, too.
