The correlation between sleep and weight gain

One of the most important aspects of maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the time we sleep and the quality of that sleep. It is important to know that sleep deprivation increases your hunger enzyme, ghrelin, which in turn increases in your hunger, which eventuates in you gaining unnecessary weight.

As you can see from the graph, not sleeping enough has negative effects even on your behavior by increasing opportunities to eat. 

Do you want to lose weight or maintain it? Remember that adults should sleep 7,5-9 hours per night.
