Have you been on a health roll for some time now…working out consistently, eating a balanced diet full of wholesome foods, and even tracking your macros (for you go-getters), and yet, the scale isn’t budging? Your waistline and hips remain the same and let’s not even mention the rubbing thighs 🙈
Maybe you’re even taking care of your mental health because you read or watched somewhere about how weight loss is 80% psychology and 20% tools/skills. You’re doing great with your meditations, journaling, even remaining in a state of gratitude…yet, no results.
All you see is other people posting about their progress and that envy and frustration just rises up in you so fast before you can say “fat loss!”.
I’ve been there.
I know precisely that feeling of frustration and utter confusion you are probably experiencing now. If my predictions are right, you’re probably looking up hormone tests to buy online now because well, “I’ve tried everything and nothing is working so it must be my hormones!”.
Ok…maybe you’re right. Maybe.
But the solution to unlocking your fat loss may be so simple you may have totally overlooked it.
I’m talking about the S word.
You know…the one you do in bed…or really anywhere that’s comfortable.
I’m talking about Sleep.
Wait, what did you think I meant? This is a blog post about weight loss 😏
Sleep is the most underrated catalyst for fat loss. You’re probably wondering how or thinking “yeah I’ve heard this before” but I’ll explain precisely why and after you’re done here, you will never take sleep for granted again.
Why is sleep so important for weight loss?
Watch this video where I go into detail about what happens when you don’t get good night’s sleep and what it means for fat storage and fat loss in your body.
In a nutshell, I discuss in detail how:
1. Poor quality sleep or lack of sleep is directly linked to:
· Reduced glucose sensitivity
· Reduced insulin sensitivity
· Increase in production of the ghrelin hormone (the one that tells you you’re hungry)
· Decrease in the production of the leptin hormone (the one that tell you you’re full)
· Increase in concentration of cortisol (stress hormone) at night
2. Best times to sleep
3. How much sleep is enough for you as an adult
4. Tips on how to get better sleep at night so you can be on your way to seeing some real, lasting changes in your body.
