[Poor sleep may affect weight loss?]
Adults need at least 7 hours of undisturbed sleep a day to feel adequate rest, but many people fail to meet the standard. Many recent studies have pointed out that lack of sleep may affect circulation, memory, and even social relationships. It is found that insufficient sleep, or disturbed sleep, is related to weight loss. People who do not have enough sleep and are overweight have poorer weight loss than those who do not have sleep problems.
A research team in the United States found that participants who reported different sleep times every night, that is, participants with high sleep variability, lost less weight than participants with regular sleep habits after one year of the study. The decline in BMI is also relatively low. In addition, the results show that people who generally sleep less than 6 hours a night have a smaller reduction in waist circumference compared to people who sleep 7 to 9 hours a night.
Therefore, establishing a regular sleep pattern is your first step to lose weight!
