Recent scientific studies show that a lack of sleep causes many significant changes in the body and increases your risk for serious health concerns such as obesity, disease, and even early death.
The healthy amount of sleep for the average adult is around seven to eight hours each night.
When you haven’t slept well do you find yourself wanting to eat more? It’s not your imagination.It’s all about the hormones:
Ghrelin is a hormone released in the stomach that signals hunger in the brain.
Leptin is a hormone released from fat cells. It suppresses hunger and signals fullness in the brain
When you do not get adequate sleep, the body makes more ghrelin and less leptin, leaving you hungry and increasing your appetite.
