Poor Sleep May Change Your Clothing Size

Many studies have shown a correlation between lack of sleep and weight gain. Sleeping less than 5 hours has been shown to decrease metabolism and mess up hormone levels causing an increase in food consumption. A new study in PLOS One looked at this connection in more details and found that those who slept less than 6 hours had higher waist measurements, higher BMI, increased weight, and lower levels of HDL. These factors contribute to obesity and diabetes, and have negative health implications. It is important for your body to get the adequate sleep that it needs – for both your mind and body – so make sleep a priority!
