Lack of Sleep Can Affect Your Weight

You may already know that sleep is necessary in order to stay emotionally healthy, but did you realize that getting sufficient sleep is also important for maintaining a healthy weight? This article on WebMD entitled  "Sleep More, Weigh Less" explains why your body is more likely to feel hungry, hold on to calories and crave starchy/sugary foods when you don't get enough sleep. It is a very interesting read.

If you are looking for tips to improve your sleep, check out one of my past blog posts on this topic. Sweet Dreams!
