Numerous studies reveal that if you give people the same diet and make the follow exactly the identical exercise regime, the individuals that are sleep-deprived (sleeping 5.5 hours or less per day) lose about 55% less body fat in comparison to the ones who sleep at least 8 hours a day. Imagine this – you can actually burn more fat just by sleeping more. How is that possible in any way? Keep reading to find out.

First of all, it’s well known that you produce the greatest amount of human growth hormone at night, but only if you’re asleep (and moreover, primarily if you’re asleep between 10am and 2am!) . This hormone, notorious for its antianging function, not only helps you build muscle tissue but in addition, it protects your muscles. And, as may have already heard, the more muscle the body carries, the more fat it burns.

Secondly, when you are sleep-deprived (and applies especially if you are awake between 10pm and 2am), your body produces excess amounts of cortisol, at the incorrect time. Cortisol is a stress hormone and it triggers a process that burns muscle tissue, slows down metabolism and encourages fat storage. To put it differently, cortisol sets off the breakdown of your proteins and their subsequent conversion to fat. So you really want to be sleeping at night to avoid excess cortisol production in the wrong moment. (NB: You do need cortisol, of course, but early in the morning so that you can have energy to move around).

Melatonin is another hormone, and it practically increases your brown adipose tissue (i.e. good fat) which functions similar to your muscle tissue since it burns white adipose tissue (i.e. bad fat). In effect, melatonin helps increase your metabolic rate. In addition, melatonin has been recognized as a powerful anti inflammatory and anti-inflammatory agent. But you can just make it at night and only if you are asleep!

So if you wish to look good and feel great, hop in bed early and treat yourself to a sound sleep. Stay up late and you’ll gradually turn into a fat ball. You stick to your routineĀ Bexar County Wildlife Removal will handle the critters keeping you up.
