Is sleeping the key to losing weight?
A healthy and moderate sleep has a stronger effect on weight loss than going long hours to gyms, a new study from Reuter shows.
The easiest and best way to lose weight is to sleep well and more slowly than to go to gyms, the Mirror Online newspaper reported.
"While we all live a busy life, I often ask if waking up an hour before going to work, doing exercise is a good idea or not," the paper quoted Doctor Guy Meadows as saying.
"From my point of view, exercise is really important to maintain fitness, but never interfere with sleep. Quite the contrary, if you are pursuing fitness goals, getting enough good sleep must be an essential part of your training plan. "
The British study that we usually feel guilty when sleeping, believing that sport is the best, but sleep is the basis for the loss of excess weight.
Dr. Meadows says that the amount of sleep we need can vary from person to person, but generally we need to get 8 hours of sleep, so that the person feels energized, all day long.
The study said that sleep controls the appetite, and therefore better and more effective than exercise.
