In today’s episode, we’re going to be talking about how better sleep leads to weight loss because there’s always so much emphasis and focus around nutrition and exercise when it comes to weight loss, and rightly so – however, sleep is often the missing link.

We discuss:

  1.  How sleep deprivation and disruption messes with our appetite-regulating hormones.
  2. Why our bodies instinctively crave sugar (or carbohydrates) instead of healthy fats and protein when we haven’t had enough sleep.
  3. Why sleep deprivation is a form of stress on our body that impairs fat burning.
  4. Three things that you may be inadvertently doing that is worsening your sleep disruption, in addition to the shift work itself, which is going to have a negative impact on weight loss.
