Lack of Sleep and Weight Gain
Lack of sleep is an often overlooked cause of weight gain. As technology advances, all kinds of activities can occur at sleep time that did not occur years ago. Impaired sleep effects metabolic hormones, glucose, and insulin metabolism. Over long periods of time, this results unintended weight gain. Other reasons for weight gain with four hours of sleep or less are fatigue the following day and increased eating both during the day and at night.
