On the Importance of Sleep and Weight Loss – One Time More

My dear women, this piece of news (may be not totally new!) is very important to take on board.

Sleep IS an essential component in your weight loss and weight maintenance throughout your life.

Though I did read quite a few studies and tests about the importance of sleep, this study done by the University of Chicago and University of Wisconsin-Madison teams has significance as it was published by the peer-reviewed journal of Annals of Internal Medicine. The study proves that those people who do not get regular 7 to 8 hours of night sleep sabotage their weight loss efforts.

More important, those without enough snoozes get their muscles burned instead of fat cells.

Enough said of importance of sleep. Next step is to diligently follow your need for a good night’s rest. You shall see results not only in your alertness level, but the way you feel and look physically: weight-wise.

Celebrate Your Sleep Today... and Always!
