Is Lack Of Sleep Stopping You From Losing Weight
When I mention getting enough rest, I’m sure the first thing that comes into your mind is, get at least 7 – 8 hours of sleep a night! But have you asked yourself why? What is the reason? Why is it so important? What happens when you sleep? What does lack of sleep do to your body?
If you think about it, we spend 1/3 of our lives sleeping. So if you are 30 years old, you’ve been sleeping for 10 years!So, ask yourself, how important is sleeping to your overall wellbeing? Oftentimes, lacking sleep is THE reason that’s stopping you from losing weight and seeing results!
Most of us have a consistent training routine and we consume a well-balanced diet, however, you fail to see results in your fitness journey. If you fix your sleeping habits, I can assure you, you will lose weight, get fitter, see results quicker, and feel a lot healthier overall.
For many of us who have been lacking sleep, we’ve forgotten what being really, truly rested feels like. We are woken up every day by the sound of our alarm clock and we drag ourselves out of bed. For some of you, it’s a never-ending cycle for many years.
And remember this, you can’t “make-up” or replace the lack of sleep, by sleeping longer hours, later on. Our body doesn’t function that way. I wish I could just spend many late nights and push through all the deadlines, and once everything is done, I’ll “catch up” with my sleep, and spend the next week sleeping. It just doesn’t work this way.
To get the most out of our sleep, both quantity and quality are important. While you’re sleeping each night, your body typically goes through several sleep cycles. In each cycle, you alternate between two types of sleep – Non-rapid Eye Movement (NREM) and Rapid Eye Movement (REM).
To keep it simple, as we begin to fall asleep, we enter the NREM cycle. This includes the stages of light sleep and deep sleep. What you really want is to have a long deep sleep to have a good quality sleep. On the other hand, the REM stage is associated with vivid dreams.
If your sleep is cut short, the body doesn’t have time to complete all of the phases needed for muscle repair, memory consolidation, and release of hormones regulating growth and appetite. That’s when weight gain can happen and this will also hinder your weight loss goal… | See full story…joannasoh.com
Joanna Soh, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.| I don’t like the word “diet” because it typically means restriction and there’s a timeline to it. Once you’ve achieved your goal, you might fall back into your old ways of eating because you’ve been deprived physically, mentally, and emotionally while on the “diet”.
I look at it as a way of living, a lifestyle. Something you truly resonate with and you can sustain it for life. I believe in balance and moderation. I aim to eat healthy most of the time, but I do enjoy my occasional indulgences. I mean waffles or warm chocolate brownies topped with ice cream…
