We live complex and busy lives. Many of us wonder how we can get just a few more hours out of the day. The problem is to do that we sacrifice the easiest way to stay optimally healthy. Sleep deprivation is a key factor in many health problems including obesity. There are several ways to help you sleep better but insomnia can be an issue with many people. Insomnia is defined as the inability to fall asleep or to remain asleep long enough to feel rested, especially when this is a problem that continues over time. Whether it is by choice or because of insomnia, sleep deprivation does cause processes in the body become less optimum.
Why would less sleep cause us to get fat? Sleep-deprived individuals tend to eat more sweet and starchy foods. Researchers suspect the cravings stem from the brain being fueled by glucose (blood sugar) so our brain is searching for carbs. There is also a hormone called leptin which tells your brain that there is no need for more food. Leptin is reduced when we have sleep deprivation. So it makes sense that less sleep could cause someone to gain weight.
