I was young and I slept so much that it was a joke! Whenever people would come to meet me, I would be sleeping. Yet, I was thinner. Does sleep have anything to do with your weight? Well, to be fair in my case I was a lot younger and so very high metabolism and also a lot more exercise. But still, does sleep affect your weight and health?
Apparently, according to a study from Nihon University, those who sleep less than 5 hours a day are more prone to obesity and have higher levels of blood sugar that could lead to obesity. Lack of sleep triggers a hormone that increases a sense of hunger and appetite for high calorie foods.
So, not only should one exercise, one should also have a good night’s sleep to keep healthy.
