How Sleep makes you Slim
Sleep can make you stay slim, pretty and smart is revealed in the following factors:
- When you are working throughout the day, your body disburse all the oxygen you breathe in.
- While sleeping, the oxygenation process is at its highest level. This stored oxygen aids in keeping the muscles, tissues and bones in shape.
- When you are exhuasted in the evening through the whole day’s work, your maximum oxygen is used up. Thus, if you do not get a good night’s snooze, your body gets deprived of the oxygen and you will feel drained up and lethargic the next day.
- If the body does not get enough oxygen, it won’t produce energy for body metabolism. This results in reduction of the metabolic rate and leads to accumulation of toxins in the body.
- All the above factors leads to slow thinking process and less responsiveness due to low oxygen supply to the brain.
- The body produces a hormone called DHEA or Dehydroepiandrosterone, when you are sleeping. This is the hormone, which works all the good for your body. DHEA is at its maximum level during the teenage, which makes the skin supple and young. When you are overstressed, DHEA produces cortisol, a stress hormone, which makes you look saggy and dull.
- Leptin, a hormone responsible for appetite suppression and Grehlin for urge to eat. When you have eaten enough, your body releases the leptin hormone, which will guide you to stop eating. But, loss of sleep reduces leptin in the body and increases grehlin level, as a result you eat more.
- Increased level of grehlin leads you to eat more than you actually should. This leads to slow body metabolism, which leads to weight gain.
So, when you arrive home late, just try to make up for the loss of sleep. Don’t protract your sleep for weekends. Thus, the mantra to stay healthy and fit is to snooze and loose..!!
