Sleep for Weight Loss…really?
With the long hours of work, commuting, family commitments, social activities and household responsibilities it is no wonder we are becoming more and more sleep deprived and living off caffeine. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 35 percent of people are sleep deprived- which is almost identical to the statistic for obesity. Connect the dots and you will see that the connection is no coincidence.
Our body needs 7 or more hours of sleep each night. A study that was published in the Annals of Internal Medicine discovered that those bodies who received adequate rest experienced a 50% reduction in fat loss than the sleep deprived.
