LOSE WEIGHT BY SLEEPING!   Leave a comment

Any plan for weight loss that does not include a plan for catching adequate sleep is self-sabotaging. Sleep is an important and very purposeful component in any physical fitness improvement plan. Lack of sleep catalyzes hormone levels that can slow metabolism and increase appetite — and that’s a tough combination to beat. Review your own physical fitness plan and explicitly (in writing!) make a plan to catch sufficient sleep! The importance of sleep was recently validated in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. You can read an article summary HERE.
