Yes, seriously. Lack of sleep also contributes towards weight gain. Or to put it another way, without the deep restorative non-rem sleep, (what we call deep sleep), your hormones will suffer, and you will disrupt your circadian rhythms. Without much deep sleep, Cortisol (otherwise known as the stress hormone) will be released more into your stomach, which also means that you will not be able to lose much belly fat, and you won't be able to build even lean muscle.
Lack of deep sleep also will throw your hormones Ghrelin and Leptin out of wrack (Ghrelin helps with your appetite and Leptin gives a signal to the brain that you no longer need food, i.e. you're full).
To help with your sleep, try to get to bed and fall asleep before 10pm. Why? Because between 10-12pm is when higher pulses of Human Growth Hormone is released. And I said on the previous page, you should know by now the benefits of Human Growth Hormone.
