Benefits of Sleep

The debate about the best way to achieve a healthy weight always revolves around eating and movement.

If you want to look better and feel healthier, the most common suggestion is "eat less and move more." Which is correct, but not the whole picture.

Between living your life, working, and exercising, you're forgetting to sleep enough, which will impact you ability to lose weight, gain muscle and perform at your best.

When you are short on sleep, it's quite typical to find yourself struggling to maintain the usual level of exercise that you normally would tolerate quite well.

In addition to this, since sleep is the primary time the body recovers from exercise, it's also when you will be rebuilding your torn muscle tissues. Without this recovery time, you're going to go into your next exercise session at a disadvantage.

One of the key recommendations for keeping motivation high, temptation low and you performing at your best , is getting quality sleep. Failing to do so could mean you having to take time away from your program, which will without question, slow you and your progress down.

So make sure you're getting your 7-8 hours of sleep each night. Not only are you going to feel better, think clearer, and be much stronger when it comes to battling those food cravings that are so common with  fat loss diets, but you'll also really be helping promote better long-term health as well.
