Sleep and Weight Gain

“Most people don’t realize that better sleep habits are instrumental to the success of any weight loss plan.” – John Winkelman MD, Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Disrupted sleep or sleep deprivation affects:

  1. growth hormone – controls body fat and muscle

  2. production of leptin hormone – tells body when it should feel full

  3. secretion of cortisol –  stress hormone causing high calorie cravings

  4. reduced daytime physical activity including natural movement and fidgeting
