9 Role of Sleep in Weight Loss

Metabolism Regulation: 

Quality sleep regulates appetite hormones like leptin and ghrelin. Sleep loss upsets this equilibrium, causing hunger and overeating.

Energy Expenditure:

A good night's sleep helps the body burn calories effectively. Poor sleep can lower energy expenditure and make calorie burning tougher.

Insulin Sensitivity: 

Proper sleep promotes insulin sensitivity, which regulates blood sugar. Insulin resistance from poor sleep may increase weight gain and diabetes risk.

Appetite Regulation:

Sleep deprivation increases high-calorie, high-sugar desires. Sleep helps manage eating choices and portions.


Stress Hormones:

Lack of sleep releases stress chemicals like cortisol, which can cause weight gain, especially around the abdomen.

Physical Activity:

Quality sleep boosts performance and exercise motivation. Sleep-deprived people may feel tired and less active.

Late-Night Eating Habits:

Staying up late or having irregular sleep patterns might lead to late-night munching and weight increase.
