20 Fat Busting Tips – Tip 16 – You Need Sleep

Sleep has many benefits…

Apart from the obvious benefit of being rested, sleep helps regulate the body’s production of the stree hormone cortisol. Cortisol, which helps regulate appetite, is increased when sleep is insufficient. Also, high levels of cortisol increase hunger and cravings.  Your body reacts to too little sleep by reducing its ability to burn carbohydrates, meaning an increase in stored fat.

So make sure you get plenty of sleep.
