Numerous studies reveal that if you give people the identical diet and make the follow exactly the same exercise regime, the ones that are sleep-deprived (sleeping 5.5 hours or less per day) lose about 55% less body fat in comparison to the people who sleep at least 8 hours a day. Imagine this – you can actually burn more fat just by sleeping more. How is that possible at all? Keep reading to discover. Let Bexar County Wildlife Removal help you get rid of those noises in the night so you can return to napping.
There are at least three factors that facilitate the fat burning process in great sleepers.
First of all, it’s well known that you produce the best quantity of human growth hormone at night, but only if you’re asleep (and moreover, primarily if you are asleep between 10am and 2am!) . This hormone, notorious for its antianging function, not only can help you build muscle tissue but it also protects your muscles. And, as may have already discovered, the more muscle the body carries, the more fat it burns.
Secondly, when you’re sleep-deprived (and applies especially if you are alert between 10pm and 2am), your body produces excess amounts of cortisol, at the incorrect time. In other words, cortisol sets off the breakdown of your proteins and their subsequent conversion to fat. So you really want to be sleeping through the night to prevent excess cortisol production in the wrong moment. (NB: You do need cortisol, obviously, but early in the morning so that you can have energy to move around).
And last but not least, when you sleep well at night, your body produces melatonin that, as indicated in a recent study published in The Journal of Pineal Research, is a powerful fat burner. Melatonin is another hormone, and it practically increases your brown adipose tissue (i.e. good fat) which functions similar to your muscle tissue since it burns white adipose tissue (i.e. bad fat). In effect, melatonin helps increase your metabolic rate. Additionally, melatonin has been recognized as a potent anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory agent. However, you can only produce it at night and just if you are asleep!
So if you wish to look good and feel good, hop in bed early and treat yourself to a sound sleep. Stay up late and you will gradually turn into a fat ball.
