Not getting to your ideal weight?  Sleep in more!

Maintaining your high performance is dependent on three things, nutrition, physical activity, and sleep.  When you ignore one of these or one of them is insufficient, your weight will suffer.  The amount of sleep directly effects staying at a healthy weight.  Hormones in your body respond to the food that you ingest.   One of those hormones is Cortisol.  Cortisol comes from the adrenal glands located on top of your kidneys.  When you do not get enough sleep the adrenal glands release cortisol and travels to your brain and triggers it to think that your body is hungry even if you have already eaten.  

Sleep is essential for performance also.  When you sleep, your body replenishes the growth hormones in your body.  When you do not get enough sleep, growth hormone levels are reduced, which in turn reduces the body’s ability to grow new muscle.  We know limitations will happen in life that affects your sleep schedule such as your night life, work, babies…  But try and get a minimum of seven hours of sleep a night in order to keep that healthy weight and to continue to break those PR’s.
