Sleep Deprivation and Its Link to Obesity

We all are aware that getting good sleep at night has a direct impact on how we feel during the day, but we are unaware that it may cause us to gain extra weight. If you are sleepy at work, you will be tempted to reach for a cup of coffee or maybe more and a slice of chocolate or a doughnut to boost your energy throughout the day!

The result of lack of sleep is to fight it off! The ultimate result? Unwanted pounds coupled with a lack of exercise set the stage for obesity and further sleep loss. As you become sluggish and sleepy, you may skip the gym or even order a take-out on your way home because you have no time to cook for your family. Later on, you find yourself back in your bed.
