Sleep Your Belly Off
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.
