Four Reasons Why Healthy Sleep Is Important For Weight Loss

Most people have a lot of the right ideas when it comes to weight loss. They know that they need to eat better and that they need to exercise more, for example. They also know that simply getting up out of the chair and being more active goes a long way.

However, one aspect of a good diet that most people don't consider is a healthy night's sleep. Ideally, we spend eight hours per day at rest, but many people don't get enough each night due to their busy lifestyles or other factors. This article aims to help you understand how vital it is for you to take the time out each evening for a full night of quality rest.

The interesting thing about sleep is that you get the benefits explicitly from rest. There is no exercise routine, and you don't have to change your diet to experience these benefits. Metabolism can be augmented purely by adopting healthier sleeping habits. Think about sleep as a nutrient. It's as important as the water and food you drink. In the same way that we can eat the wrong foods, we can also suffer from malnutrition in our sleeping habits. Let's explain in depth how sleep encourages optimal health.

Sleep Helps Build Muscle

Did you know that sleep is a vitally important aspect of anaerobic exercise? You see when you lift weights and exercise. You don't get stronger right away. When you lift weights, your muscles develop tiny, natural microscopic tears, and you become stronger through the healing process. This healing process takes place primarily at night via the function of Human Growth Hormone and Testosterone.

While you are asleep, your body distributes Human Growth Hormone and Growth Factors throughout the body to encourage repairs. This speeds up the muscle reinforcement process, allowing you to grow stronger more quickly. Natural HGH is released on and off in bursts during sleep, around once every hour and a half. It also benefits the skin and other organs because HGH is an agent of cellular metabolism.

Testosterone is also released during sleep in both sexes, although in much lower concentrations in women.

Testosterone activates enzymes in the muscle cells, which cause them to work more quickly and develop faster, which is why men naturally have larger muscles than women. If you are interested in losing weight, developing muscle, and maintaining an increased energy level, sleep is as important as any other aspect of your exercise routine.
