12 Sep Tip 14- Can A Lack of Sleep Make You Fat?
Sleep, or lack thereof, is something that more than 50 percent of Americans have trouble with at least a few times each week. When you frequently get less sleep than your body needs, you are setting yourself up for a slower metabolism (you can gain weight if you sleep less than six and a half hours per night), an accelerated aging process and, possibly, the early stages of diabetes. Chronic sleep debt can also speed up age-related health problems such as high blood pressure, obesity and even memory loss.
Today’s tip: You can make up some sleep debt damage by spending longer than eight hours in bed when time allows. Sneak in sleep where you can; napping is helpful!
