“If you want to be healthy, you need to get 8 hours of sleep each and every night.” But, where did this 8-hour number come from? It turns out, 8 hours of sleep is just an average. For some people, they only need 6 hours of sleep per night to be well rested. Others may need up to 10 hours. How do you discover your sleep ‘sweet-spot’? If you sleep 7 hours and wake up feeling well-rested, then your body is answering the question for you. The important thing is that you feel well-rested. Sleep is extremely important, especially if you want to balance your hormones, flatten your tummy and get rid of your muffin top.
3 things happen while you sleep that is important for achieving the sexy toned body you’ve been working so hard for:
1. Your body re-sensitizes to the hormone ‘Leptin’ – this is the hormone that makes you feel full after eating.
2. Cortisol spikes right before you wake you up – The less sleep you get, the more cortisol is released. Cortisol is a common hidden-cause of stubborn belly fat, bloating, and muffin top.
3. Your body releases growth hormone – Contrary to what many people think, growth hormone doesn’t build muscle or make you bulky. What it does is melt body fat, increase metabolism, and keep you looking younger and healthier.
Long story short: more (and better quality sleep) will control your appetite, reduce stubborn belly fat, and increase your metabolism.
I know it’s hard to fit in enough sleep in our busy day to day lives, but you owe it to yourself.
You’ll be shocked at how much a few weeks of good sleep can do to skyrocket your results and kick through a plateau. Give it a try – I know you won’t be disappointed
