We spend about 1/3 of our lives asleep
Average 3,000 hours of sleep per year
Most people do not get enough sleep
Sleep deprivation is one of the leading causes of heart disease, stroke, weight gain, memory loss and a multitude of co-morbid diseases.
The amount and quality of sleep you get can impact how you gain or lose weight. Research shows that there is a correlation between sleep loss and weight gain. Appetite-regulating hormones, ghrelin and leptin, are thrown out of balance by lack of sleep, leading to an uptick in appetite and consequent weight gain.
Exercise and diet alone are not sufficient for weight loss or maintenance, as important as those things are. Sleep is also a critical component for achieving your ideal weight.
