Sleep Your Belly Off

Men's Health (Malaysia) - - Fitness -

Shut-eye is as im­por­tant as diet and ex­er­cise when it comes to how you look, feel and per­form, ac­cord­ing to St. Pierre. In a small pilot study, over­weight peo­ple who re­stricted the win­dow dur­ing which they al­lowed them­selves to eat (from 14-plus hours to 10 to 12) ate less, lost weight, and slept bet­ter. Your hunger hor­mone lev­els rise when you’re fa­tigued, which means you’re more likely to make poor food choices through­out the day. In fact, in a French study, peo­ple con­sumed 560 more calo­ries the day af­ter just one night of poor sleep – four hours – than they did af­ter sleep­ing eight hours. So set a cur­few and stick to it – no mat­ter what’s next on Net­flix.
