Can going to sleep late make you gain weight?


People go to extreme lengths to lose weight—crash diets, rigorous exercise regimes and a multitude of other painful, expensive and often unproductive methods—but many are unaware of one of the easiest ways to help your body lose weight: going to bed early.

That’s right. An increasing number of scientific studies have found that there is a direct link between bedtime and your body’s ability to lose weight. The later you go to bed, the harder your body finds it to shed those extra kilos. Compared to restricting what you eat or spending hours a day in the gym, hitting the hay an hour earlier has to be one of the most painless and easy to accomplish methods of weight loss ever.

Part of the reason bedtime has such a dramatic effect on weight loss is that it is connected to a person’s eating cycle. The times of the day that you eat food have a massive impact on how tat food is digested and how your metabolism copes. One study followed the eating and sleeping patterns of a 50 people and found that those who went to bed before midnight, early sleepers, ate less at night, ate earlier at night, and were able to digest their food better before going to bed.

If you want to lose weight, go to bed earlier and improve your eating patterns at the same time.
