Long Sleep equals to Weight Loss

Did you know that aside from weight loss surgery and exercise, one of the other ways you can lose weight is from sleeping?

Studies have shown that insomniacs and short sleepers burn less calories than those who have slept longer when they wake up. Even when walking, overweight people who had a good night sleep burn over 1,000 calories more than those with normal weights who had lesser or no sleep.

Some doctors believe this is caused by several factors. Lack of sleep can cause disruption of our body’s natural hormones, which can result to overeating. Stress is also another factor, as people tend to eat more when they are stressed.

But of course, this doesn’t mean that people should sleep all the time. This just means that people should get at least 8 to 9 hours of sleep to lose weight. If you sleep way too much, your boss or teacher might get mad at you. XD
