 Over the past hundred years, people began to sleep, on average, 1, 5-2 hours less, while the rate of sleep remained unchanged. As lack of sleep contributes to adding extra kilos of fat?

For example, tormented by lack of sleep on the job, it is difficult to give up the temptation to drink a cup of coffee, and where the coffee - and there is something sweet (it's energy, which is lacking!). In the evening, very tired due to lack of sleep can justify their reluctance to go to the gym, but instead to go home, bought on the way polufabriktov or, for example, some fast food - cook with regular lack of sleep is also difficult, as do the rest. However, you get to bed too late (because it was necessary to finish the work at home, or read your child a story and talk with a friend, or do anything else), and does not spill over. And if you go to bed early, severe fatigue may be a long time not to fall asleep. Tomorrow, everything is repeated. It is a vicious circle, the consequences of which affect, among other things, on your figure.

In chronic sleep deprivation compensatory overeating is very common. And the longer you do not get enough sleep, the more weight dial.

 . In some people, the rate for a few hours more or less. If a person sleeps less than their quota, the body produces more hormones ghrelin and less - leptin. Ghrelin is responsible for the appetite, and elevated levels of the hormone most people usually feel the desire to eat. Leptin, on the other hand, indicates the saturation, reducing appetite. Due to its low level as a result of lack of sleep a person can have more and longer than usual.

To cope with the lack of sleep, it is necessary to pay attention not only to how much you sleep, but the quality of sleep. For example, if you are after work at 1-1, 5:00 go to bed, then get up late into the night doing some chores, go back and this time sleep six o'clock - you may experience all the symptoms of sleep deprivation, while you sleep is normal the number of hours for you.

Hang thick curtains on the windows, remove all of the bedroom that can glow in the dark - for example, the electronic clock.

Today, because of the need to not only work, but also to learn, exercise, pay attention to family and friends, many people simply can not afford to sleep more than five or six hours.

Sleep, hormones and weight

Studying the relationship between lack of sleep and weight gain, the researchers came to the conclusion that lack of sleep affects the secretion of certain hormones - ghrelin and leptin are responsible for hunger and the feeling of saturation. When the secretion of these hormones is disrupted, people often experience intense hunger, satisfy that, on the contrary, it becomes much more difficult.

Leptin suppresses appetite, whereas ghrelin, conversely, increases. When lack of sleep turns into a chronic problem, levels of the hormone ghrelin increases, and the level of leptin - falls, causing the sensation of hunger. This in turn leads to a rapid weight gain caused by overeating constant.
