Technically no, you cannot sleep your way thin.
However, studies have shown that individuals who sleep 8 hours a night double their chances of weight loss success.
When you don’t get enough sleep not only can your weight loss stall, but it can also lead to anxiety, stress, low performance, and questionable decision making.
A lack of sleep can also negatively affect your hormones and cause you to overeat.
I say this to say sleep is extremely important to your overall health.
So now the question is, how much sleep is enough?
That all depends on the individual. We are all different and will need a different amount of sleep. Some people can thrive on just 5 hours of sleep, while others need 10 hours.
I personally need about 6 to 7 hours a night.
You have to listen to your own body.
The goal is to wake up feeling refreshed and ready to go without the help of an alarm. You just want your body to naturally wake up.
Sleep is something we all need and can’t live without.
When you get enough sleep you will be happier, less stressed, more productive, and lose more weight.
While sleep is important, its also important you are following a healthy meal plan. If you need help, take this free quiz.
