Sleep it off

Losing weight needs a lot of effort, energy, money and time. Before making an expensive step why not try this very simple and can do it yourself without expense.
Sleep It Off
Skimping on sleep may add inches to your waistline.

Your blood levels of leptin, a hormone that acts as an appetite suppressant, appear to decrease when you experience sleep deprivation, according to new research. Keep leptin levels high and curb overeating and weight gain by sleeping it off - make sure you get at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep per night.

Leptin is a hormone produced by fat cells. It helps regulate appetite and metabolism by acting on feeding centres in the brain. High levels of the hormone help you eat less while low levels increase your appetite and cause you to eat more.

In addition to getting adequate amounts of sleep, other ways to control your appetite include drinking a full glass of water before meals; eating foods high in fibre; avoiding becoming overly hungry so that you end up binging; and eating balanced meals with complex-carbohydrates, lean protein, and healthy fats.
