Sleep deprivation can increase the risk of obesity, which has disconcerted health experts who have illuminated the nature of this relationship.
It is widely known that sleep contributes to the repair of the brain and is important for the health of the whole body.
"Many studies have shown a direct link between lack of sleep and obesity," said Shivani Rajdev, a dietitian. "Insomnia leads to low energy, as well as to hormones, such as increasing levels of ghostly, thus increasing appetite and promoting fat. Sleep also leads to a decrease in tolerance sensitivity to insulin and glucose, as well as an increase in cortisol levels, all of them directly related to obesity. "
A study published in BMJ found a close relationship between sleep deprivation and obesity in adults.
Another study by the National Institutes of Health of the National Library of Medicine of the United States reviewed recent tests that related the low duration of sleep and the poor quality of sleep to obesity, with an emphasis on studies for adults.
The study concludes that sleep deprivation affects the energy balance, increases the cost and affects calories.
It increases the drowsiness and fatigue of the stable behavior and thus reduces the energy expenditure associated with the exercise. A good night's sleep is as important as regular exercise and a healthy diet.
When it comes to sleeping enough at night, individuals should try to increase exposure to daylight, reduce exposure to blue at night and reduce caffeine intake, sleep and wake up in consistent moments
