Know the scientific reasons that show that slow sleep may be the reason you gain weight. And it is that your body rests unless you have a good metabolism and therefore cannot digest food properly, which will make you gain weight. Here we show how many hours you have to sleep.
If you are one of those who sleeps after midnight because "you can't sleep early" … we have news that you will not like anything. And that is a study from Northwestern University, showing that it is dangerous that you sleep after 12:45, because when there is less rest, it is possible that during the day you consume more carbohydrates to stay active.
To reach this conclusion, analyzed 96 adults between the ages of 18 and 50 years, which measured physical activity and sleep patterns for several weeks. And it was determined that people who slept less than 6 hours and a half, at night, had lower performance during the day and a tendency to gain weight.
According to this study, those who sleep after 12:45 can get up to 900 grams per month if they do not do any physical activity. Conversely, people who sleep early have a more agile metabolism that helps the body digest more quickly, processes your food better and keeps you at your ideal weight. In addition, when you sleep more you will increase capacity for reasoning and creativity.
