Sleep is important!

Why?  Because not getting enough sleep can lead to weight gain……

Several studies have shown that not getting enough sleep or a decrease in sleep quality can affect appetite control that may lead to overeating. Lack of sleep has also been tied to decreased insulin sensitivity and increased risk of diabetes, both conditions that are often linked with overweight.  In addition, sleep disorders and chronic sleep loss have also been linked to heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure.
