If you haven’t been lost in your own little universe somewhere then you’ve obviously been doing the 12 week weight loss challenge we have going in collaboration with Ask Damz. Here’s a little reminder of what it’s all about:
We know that not everyone is on the AskDamz programme (but if you’re not, you might want to change that because it’s truly awesome) so we’re giving helpful tips every week to help make this challenge a little easier.
Last week we talked about the importance of keeping a food diary. And this week is all about getting some quality shut eye.
An often overlooked factor in body weight may be your sleep habits. Though the optimal amount of sleep varies from person to person, too little sleep (fewer than six hours a night in one study) has been linked to weight gain because it may affect appetite hormones and lead to increased hunger and food intake, decreased calorie burning, and increased fat storage.
And that’s our tip for the week! So make sure you get enough sleep because it’s a very important part of keeping yourself happy and healthy!
Check back next week for your next tip!
