Weight Gain

A decrease in sleep, increase in appetite and ultimately, your weight.

Studies have shown that people who get frequent, good quality sleep tend to weigh less than those who lack appropriate shut eye. These certainly is a correlation between good health and good sleep. People with sleep deficiencies have distorted qualities of a hormone that has been identified in controlling hunger. This creates an amplified appetite and increases your preference for high calorie foods.

Those are an abundance of physical consequences evident when your body lacks sleep. Sleep loss affects your mood, your appetite and your hormones. You are inclined to desire comfort food when you are tired and it’s more probable that you will indulge your craving for them. You will grab for the chips, ice cream and candy rather than choosing carrot sticks.

Even though it may feel like you have a boost in your energy level, you fill find yourself hungry more frequently. Your hunger isn’t the real problem; your sleepiness is. That will result in you not just making bad food choices but making frequent bad choices.

For a lot of people, emotional eating is triggered when you are tired. This is because you are less resistant to stress and stress leads to eating. Also, people will use food as a means to stay awake. Again, your body is craving sleep, not food, but in your sleepy state, you fail to recognize this.
