Sleep and Exercise Affect Your Weight

According to research presented at the Food and Nutrition Conference (FNCE) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, people who sleep less have a higher risk of weighing more. This is because the lack of sleep causes disruption to the hormones that regulate appetite. Additionally, when you are tired, you may not have the energy to exercise, and you are more likely to make poor food choices and snack more often. It is important to aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night for optimal health. Exercise is also important to maintain weight, and not just because you are burning calories. Exercise helps regulate metabolism and control your appetite. Weight loss is not just about dieting; remember to sleep and exercise in order to get the body you want!
