How Your Sleeping Pattern Affects Your Ability to Stick to a Diet

InstaSleep Reviews Team article notes:

  • A good night’s sleep improves your ability to lose weight effectively, according to a new survey. As adults, it’s recommended that we get at least seven and a half hours of sleep a night — preferably heading to bed at the same time every night, too.
  • People sleeping for less than seven hours a night tended to have more chaotic eating patterns to mirror their erratic sleeping habits. Poor sleepers were more likely to snack between meals and cheat on their diets than someone getting more sleep.

This is how an erratic sleep schedule affects your ability to lose weight – and the exact time you should go to bed to get results

A new survey by Forza Supplements has linked sleep patterns to weight loss. Sleeping for at least 7.5 hours each night makes you less likely to snack. You’re also less likely to drink too much alcohol or cheat on your diet regimen. The best bedtime for weight loss is apparently 10:10pm.

Sleep vs. Exercise?

InstaSleep Reviews Team article notes:

  • Sleep is important for workouts, reducing the risk of injury and allowing muscles to recover from exercise. Lack of sleep weakens the immune system, making people more likely to become sick — which means missing workouts.
  • Going to bed late, particularly if you’re using electronic devices and sitting under bright lights before bedtime, shifts the body’s circadian rhythms later. People still need around eight hours of sleep per night.
