Getting Enough Sleep Can Promote Weight Loss
Sleep and the Adrenal Glands
Sleep helps our adrenal glands to stay optimized. Our adrenal glands help to modulate how we react emotionally to our environment. The adrenal glands are the ones that produce stress hormones in the body. Stress hormones are known to cause weight gain, especially in the belly!
Emotional distress and fatigue often lead to poor dietary habits and a lack of exercise! Stress also leads people to desire caffeine and alcohol and also causes water retention in our bodies.
Good Sleep Patterns and Weight Management
The latest literature has been showing a significant correlation between healthy sleep patterns and maintaining weight loss. Other studies, show a correlation with short sleep duration and obesity.
I encourage my HCG Diet patients to pay closer attention to their biological clocks and get into a better rhythm with sleep. I have actually seen positive changes in my patients clinically with improved and enhanced sleeping patterns.
