How lack of sleep affects your weight

When you’re tired, your body produces a hunger-stimulating hormone called ghrelin. At the same time, the hormone that makes you feel satisfied, called leptin, drops. As a result, you may have mad cravings for foods that are high in fat and carbohydrates just because you haven’t been getting enough sleep.

Another important hormone called cortisol is what helps our bodies naturally wake up in the morning and fall asleep at night. Right before waking up, cortisol is at its peak and continues to fall slowly throughout the day until it reaches its lowest at night-signaling to the body that it’s time to sleep. When we don’t get enough sleep, cortisol will not fall over the course of the day as it should. And, when our cortisol levels are higher for longer, it signals to the body that it should store fat and use muscle for energy.

Women: 40s are the new 20s

As time goes by, our bodies experience changes. We process food, exercise, and sleep differently. Staying up to date with your bodily needs can be complicated when you don’t know what’s happening. As a woman, when you move into your 30’s and 40’s, you’re most likely pretty busy juggling work, home, and family. Taking care of yourself may seem like just one more thing to add to your already-packed to-do list. As a woman, your health risks change with the passing of time. What was not a concern at twenty may become a concern at forty. That’s okay as long as you know what to look out for.
