The solution to losing weight or getting less fat is more sleep
The main sleep disorders
Numerous studies have shown that people who sleep less are more likely to become obese.
Those who sleep little, particularly between the ages of 32 and 49, have a higher body mass index and are more likely to become obese than those who rest deeply for a longer period. For example, one in two people who suffer from diabetes report suffering from insomnia and tend to fall asleep especially during the day as opposed to the opposite habit of resting during the night.
As for the female universe, the Nurses Health Study observed for twelve years 60,000 healthy, non-obese women, aged between 39 and 65, and women who reported little sleep, about five hours a night, had increased on average 2.47 pounds more than those who reported having an average of 7 hours of sleep per night. Furthermore, it was proved that the risk of obesity was greater in women who slept less than 7 hours per night regardless of diet, alcohol consumption and physical activity.
The experts of the Italian Association of Sleep Medicine launch the alarm because unfortunately, insomnia affects almost one Italian in three and can represent a risk factor for the onset of numerous diseases in addition to obesity, such as cardiovascular risk.
The reason for the reaction of our body that tends to get fat when subjected to lack of sleep is that a lower amount of rest increases the appetite during the day because the body tends to make more food to stay awake longer. long entering a state of "emergency".
Surely a medical consultation, a healthy diet and physical activity can help to cure this disorder by avoiding unwanted weight gain and, with these 7 activities to avoid, you can immediately begin to "cure" yourself, even in this respect :
1. Go to bed if you are not sleepy: sleep cannot be "forced"
2. Sleep more the next morning if you have slept little at night
3. Do naps during the day, as these negatively affect the night's sleep
4. Take caffeinated drinks or alcohol before going to bed. Alcohol can cause drowsiness but, once its effects are over, you risk waking up in the middle of the night and maybe having difficulty falling asleep again
5. Smoking near bedtime
6. Eat foods that are too elaborate, rich in fats and proteins, which engage the body in a too laborious digestion
