If you’re trying to lose weight but the scale won’t budge, you might want to take a look at your sleep habits. Sleep is something we all need but often neglect to prioritize. Getting less than the recommended amount of shut-eye each night can increase your risk of certain health conditions, including obesity.
But what is it about sleep duration — or lack thereof — that may lead to putting on extra pounds? We’ve partnered with WW (Weight Watchers Reimagined) to go over the science of how sleep habits affect your ability to lose weight, how sleep deprivation impacts your appetite, and the benefits of healthy sleep hygiene.
You might think you’re getting enough sleep — but unless you’re snoozing for at least 7 hours each night most days of the week, you could be falling short of the recommended sleep guidelines for adults
