InstaSleep Reviews Team article notes:
“If you don’t sleep, you will get a reduced level of leptin, which is the hormone that will tell you you are full; and you get an increased level of ghrelin, which tells you when you are hungry. So you are removing the ‘I am full’ signal and adding the ‘I am hungry’ signal. As a result, you don’t feel satisfied by food.” —Dave Gibson, sleep expert and co-author of “The Art of Falling Asleep”
- “The main thing with sleep is regularity. It is not just about the quantity, but the fact that you go for it every day at the same time,” said Gibson. “You should be getting around seven and a half hours of sleep — it varies per person, but don’t ever dip below six.”
