Sleep helps to lose weight.

"Everything, from Monday go to the gym" - easier said than done. And you are not the first who dreams of elastic buttocks, lying on the couch, after exhausting working day. But do not rush to blame themselves and to reproach - you're on the right track.

As many studies show, enough sleep (about 7 to 8 hours) - your trump card in the fight against excess weight. A separate study conducted at the University of Chicago and the University of Pennsylvania, for example, have shown that people with sleep disorders suffer more from obesity than those who are well rested.

Get to know the culprits: ghrelin and leptin - crafty hormone responsible for feelings of hunger and satiety. While adequate, restful sleep, leptin (appetite suppressant) is growing, and ghrelin (appetizing) - is reduced.

When you're a little sleep, this delicate balance is disturbed; Your body produces less leptin and more ghrelin, leaving you hungry and irritated.

And then without sport anywhere. 30-40 minutes of exercise and you do not only sleep better at night, but during the day and look better!
