Nutrition Quickie:  Why Do We Need More Sleep?

 

I am Registered Dietitian Jayson Hunter and here is your Nutrition Quickie for today. Apply it and strengthen your nutritional foundation with multiple Quickies like this.

 

 

 

 

Most of us want more sleep because we are just flat out tired.

Work commitments, family commitments and stress of life all contribute to us being tired more than we would like.

Getting enough sleep could not be overstated.

Scientists have shown us that lack of sleep disrupts our appetite hormones like ghrelin so we are hungry more than we should be.

It can drive insulin resistance which causes us to store more of our calories as fat.

One study linked insufficient sleep to an 89% and 55% increased risk of obesity in children and adults and is one of the strongest individual risk factors for weight gain and obesity.

Take some time and test some new ideas at bedtime and in your bedroom to try and get as much quality sleep as you can.
