You have probably heard that sleep is an important component of health, anti-aging and fat loss. So, in one fell swoop, it covers living longer, better and looking better as well. Why is it so important? Well first, sleep is one of the “big three” of the things that can make or break fat loss.
Over training and over dieting are the other two things that will stop your metabolism dead in its tracks. Lack of sleep is the other. In addition, it’s hard to exercise if you are sleep deprived and this alone can contribute to a failed weight/fat loss program.
In addition, from the health stand point, adequate sleep (usually at least 7 hours for most people) is needed to let your hormonal body clock release the needed hormones for repair and rejuvenation.
There has been no study for sleep and telomere length yet, but I can tell you when they do it, they will find that chronic sleep deprivation shortens your telomeres and thus shortens your life.
Now, if you address the big three in proper fashion: nutrition, exercise and sleep, you can control all the variables that make for successful fat loss and the new body or better body you’ve wanted for so long.
This will just be temporary. Once your body adapts to the new lifestyle you’ve chosen, you won’t need any help at all. But until then, I can make it a lot easier and show you success a lot sooner. And who doesn’t want that!
