2nd culprit....not enough sleep! Insufficient sleep can hamper your weight loss efforts by raising the hormone cortisol: chronic elevations of this stress hormone can lead to a breakdown of muscle tissue. Lack of sleep also lowers your levels of leptin, which controls how full you feel, while raising ghrelin, which increases your hunger! To ensure successful weight loss efforts, try to shoot for at least 7 hours a day (preferably 8) of sleep per night.
I'm a lovin life girl... a bit of a daredevil at times... I love my family and friends and my great clients! I learn a lot a long the way and I'd love to share what I learn with you. :-)
