Sleep More to Lose Fat!
A lack of sleep can make it harder to lose fat. A 2012 study found that those who had the
longest sleep duration (at least 7 hours) had the biggest reduction in fat mass.
The quality of your sleep is just as important in aiding fat loss via hormonal balance.
Some helpful tips for getting the most out of your sleep and hormones are making
sure your room is as dark as possible, all wifi and electronics are turned off, write in
a grateful log before bed, and make sure your room is cool (65-70 degrees).
