The odd relationship between sleep and weight reduction is discussed in the article "Snooze and lose happily."

You probably already know this, but did you know that in order to lose weight or to keep the weight off, you need to control not only your food and your fitness regimen, but also your sleep?

Getting insufficient sleep has been linked to weight growth in a number of studies, thus the answer is yes. This is how your body and your weight are being affected by the lack of sleep you are getting.

Reducing your intake of sugary and junk food is a common strategy for those who are attempting to lose weight. If you're trying to lose weight and love eating them, cutting back will require a lot of self-control, especially in the beginning.

But when you don't get enough shut-eye, you're more likely to grab for processed foods or order in when you're hungry, drink more coffee, and put off exercising and cooking.

People who didn't get enough sleep were more likely to eat late at night, and when they did, they were more likely to pick for carb-heavy snacks, according to a research in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

People who get insufficient amounts of sleep tend to consume larger portions of all meals, according to the findings of another study. This may result in an increase in body weight.

The stress hormone cortisol spikes when you don't get enough sleep, telling your body to save energy for when you're up. Because of this, your body has a tendency to store fat.

After four days of little sleep, your body's insulin processing, which converts sugar, carbs, and other food into energy, goes haywire, according to research. Over 30% insulin sensitivity might decrease. When insulin doesn't work correctly, your body stores fats instead of digesting them, causing weight gain.
