Sleep More to Lose Weight

by : Arthur Carry

Do you think that you are gaining weight lately? Are you leading a healthy lifestyle? Well! Do ask yourself how well do you sleep. For how many hours you give your body sufficient rest? Our body requires atleast 8 hours of sleep every night as it is during sleep that our body is at complete rest. Sleeping less than 8 hours can adversely affect your waist and overall body weight.

Some people believe in the concept that too much sleep contributes to weight gain. However, the opposite is true. Inadequate sleep contributes more to weight gain. It is noticeable that people working at odd shifts and parents who recently had a baby gain weight within a short while as they have to compromise with a bizarre schedule that deprive them of sufficient sleep during the night. They all put on weight due to lack of adequate sleep and altogether as a consequence of less sleep in the night they tend to eat more. Since they do not sleep when they are supposed to do so, they pass their time eating.

Getting sufficient sleep is very important as we become dull and inactive and cannot function properly when our body is weak. Further, when our body lacks sleep, the hypothalamus which controls our sleeping, body temperature, thirst, hunger and blood pressure in the brain is activated. Ghrelin and leptin are two hormones associated with our food intake. As the body is deprived of sleep, there is a change in hormones where in the Ghrelin level is up. It sends the signal of hunger and hence we feel hungry all the time.

In order to satiate our hunger when we eat, we consume more than what we need. We keep on munching at something all the extra awaking hours that result in weight gain. Therefore, to be fit, active and to trigger off weight loss,quality sleep is needed and also a change in the insomniac lifestyle which we so blissfully desire is a necessity.

Obesity can turn into an epidemic if we continue with the way we are today. It is the second leading cause of death. In America alone, 65% are obese and overweight and as such it is apparent that 65% of Americans are at high risk of suffering from diabetes, heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure and other ailments. The only solution to the problem is losing weight by sticking to healthy diets and exercises.

For morbidly obese people, taking diet pills like phentermine along with dieting and exercising is a good choice. Phentermine diet pill is one of the oldest diet pill and is popular the world over on account of its effectiveness in countering obesity.
