It makes you very hungry

Dr. Lipman explains that you do not cling to the pillow for the recommended amount of time (The National Sleep Foundation says that an adult between the ages of 26-64 should sleep between seven and nine hours per night), makes us more hungry and also causes cravings for sugar, carbohydrates and caffeine .

"Lack of sleep also increases the amount of the hormone ghrelin in your body, which makes you hungry. At the same time, few hours of sleep leads to a lack of enough leptin, the hormone that makes you feel full. It's a double blow! "

Your ability to burn fat decreases

"The levels of glucagon, an essential hormone for burning adequate fat, in your body begin to fall when your body does not get enough sleep, making it more difficult to lose weight."Something similar happens with the hormone adiponectin, which helps to dissolve fat and promote insulin sensitivity. "Without adequate amounts of this hormone, you are more likely to gain weight."

"We are a nation deprived of sleep, and it is time to make the dream a priority,"says the doctor. "Lack of sleep not only makes you feel dizzy and with little force, it makes you fat." To encourage sleep, try spraying a lavender spray on the pillow or change your daily routine before going to sleep to create a calmer state that promotes better sleep.
