3. Lack of sleep
Lack of sleep can contribute to weight gain. It appears to be associated with metabolic changes that can lead to overeating and obesity. In studies that limited sleep in the laboratory, subjects tended to have metabolic and glucose metabolism changes that could lead to obesity later in life. Getting too little sleep can also contribute to weight gain by putting too much stress on the body. The body sees sleep deprivation as a state of stress. Cortisol is the stress hormone. This, in turn, triggers the release of insulin, and insulin is a storage hormone that promotes fat storage.
If you’re trying to lose weight, it’s important to get enough sleep, not only because of how it affects you physically, but also psychologically. Lack of sleep makes you feel confused, confused, and can even lead to depression or anger.
Stress and weight gain (or lack of weight loss) go hand in hand. Although you may not know it, being under constant stress can increase the production of the hormone cortisol, which can lead to increased appetite, as well as excessive accumulation of fat around the abdominal area. The latter is linked to diabetes, high cholesterol and other health problems.
To deal with stress, it is enough to relax a few minutes a day, schedule a massage as often as possible, or reduce working hours and increase rest time.
