People who sleep less than 6 hours per night encounter difficulties when they want to get rid of extra pounds, as according to the American scientists. Research shows that lack of sleep has a negative impact on the process of weakening and harms your health.

Review about little sleep

In a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that people who sleep too little will not burn enough calories, as the case with those who sleep around 7-8 hours a night.
In other words, people who are not resting; metabolism is much slower than the good of those who sleep well as need.

Research carried out over time stresses that too little sleep (around 4 hours per night) automatically implies higher consumption of calories. People who are not supposed to sleep properly are tempted to eat more foods high in calories, especially at night when metabolism functions slowly.


When you sleep too little body secretes ghrelin; a hormone that stimulates you to eat. The role of ghrelin is to increase the appetite for foods high in calories. Little sleep lowers leptin; that notifies you to stop excessive consumption. Leptin levels are high during the night, so there is no need to eat when you sleep. However, lack of sleep drastically increases the level of hunger hormones and thus the chance to accumulate excess calories is much higher.

To effectively lose weight you have to consider the habits that can lead to metabolic disorders. Nutrition, stress, sleep, thyroid problems, all are closely related to weight loss. Moreover too little sleep is likely to eliminate less fat than normal.
