Importance of Sleep

WELLNESS WEDNESDAY 💮

When it comes to changing body composition, whether losing fat or gaining muscle, sleep is just as important as exercise and nutrition – maybe MORE! 😴

An adequate amount of high-quality sleep helps control hunger hormones, increases basal metabolic rate to promote higher calorie burn, leading to more fat loss over time. 💤 Sleep can also increase lean muscle mass due to its role in recovery, specifically rebuilding broken down cells and tissues, while the brain releases hormones directly responsible for protein synthesis and muscle growth.

If you are having trouble changing your body composition, even with a healthy diet and exercise, take a look at your sleep quantity and quality.

SLEEP is one of the Top 5 points we address with Nutrition Coaching and we have plenty of tricks up our sleeves to help with your sleep.
