how sleep schedules affect body mass and fat

sleep alone isn’t enough to peel off the pounds; you’ll also want to try these 5 additional strategies to speed weight loss.

That said, the study followed up on a body of research conducted over the last few years that ties quality and quantity of sleep to weight loss and better weight control. For example, a randomized trial published in the journal Obesity last year found that among overweight and obese women ages 35 to 55 who were engaged in a weight loss program, getting an adequate amount of good quality sleep increased the chance of weight loss success by 33 percent.

While  researchers don’t know exactly how sleep schedules affect body mass and fat, other studies have shown that sleep has an effect on physical activity, appetite, and the hormones that control appetite, metabolism, and the cues that tell us we’re full. According to studies skimping on sleep boosts production of ghrelin, the hormone that controls food cravings, and decreases production of leptin, the hormone that signals satiety and helps prevent over-eating.
