Dodge su­gar with sleep

Trail Running (UK) - - Warm- Up -

To keep a lid on sweet treats, make sure you’re get­ting enough rest. Ex­perts at the Univer­sity of Tsukuba have found that when rapid eye move­ment (REM) sleep is de­prived, the pre­frontal cor­tex of the brain – re­spon­si­ble for en­cour­ag­ing us to eat calo­rieladen food – goes into over­drive. Pri­ori­tis­ing a reg­u­lar bed­time rou­tine, such as a warm bath and a good book be­fore lights out, pro­motes deep sleep, en­sur­ing you stay on the healthy straight and nar­row.
