The Golden Chain of Health – Sleep or Food?

Hello!! Welcome to the Day 8 of the Golden Chain of Health! Today, I am going to share the 7th benefit of 11 surprising benefits of sleep, Food for Your Body.

Today, I had a long day. Being traveled to few locations for meetings and get exhausted. So, I went home earlier and had my dinner around 6pm. It is now 11pm and I am a bit hungry, thinking of food…

Wait! Do you have any similar experience before? Do you want to have a late supper near mid-night?

If your answer is YES, let me tell you something about it. Actually, we are both sleepy instead of hungry.

What? YES!

Researchers at the University of Chicago found that dieters who were well rested lost more fat, by around 56% of their weight loss, than those who were sleep deprived, who lost more muscle mass.

“Sleep and metabolism are controlled by the same sectors of the brain,” Dr. Rapoport says. “When you are sleepy, certain hormones go up in your blood, and those same hormones drive appetite.”

So, if you are on diet, you will a sleep plan too!

Right! I want to have a better weight control, so I had better go to bed rather than the kitchen. Good Night 🙂
