Losing Sleep Can Increase Weight

Losing even one night’s sleep can impact your weight

How well you sleep can impact your weight, especially in menopause. Menopause is fraught with sleep interrupters such as: Hot Flushes, Increased Anxiety, Worry, and relationship issues (perhaps triggered by moods – or the inability to tolerate s***..tuff)

Research has found a link between weight gain and how many hours a person sleeps. A study showed that sleeping less than seven hours a night – or more than nine hours – may pack on the weight.

Losing just one night’s sleep could trigger physiological changes that can lead to weight gain. We’ve long known that poor sleep is associated with obesity. Earlier research has shown that people between the ages of 32 and 49 who slept four hours or less per night were 73 percent more likely to be obese than people who reported sleeping between seven and nine hours per night.

The amount of sleep you get influences the body’s appetite controls, causing a reduction in secretion of the hormone leptin that quells appetite and an increased secretion of the hormone ghrelin that stimulates appetite. Sleeping too much or too little also enhanced susceptibility to low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), which can increase appetite leading to weight gain.

Poor sleep affects moods, increased appetite (especially for sugary foods) and craving…all leading poor sleep and weight gain. Add to the mix some serious hot flushes ant it can seem daunting.

But, there is an answer to this what at times can s seem-overwhelming for sure!
