Get your sleep, Grehlin

Next on the docket, grehlin.

This is a hormone that increases before you eat. It stimulates hunger.

Guess what one of it's greatest influencing factors would be.

Sleep.

I can not stress enough that you get enough sleep.

Decreased sleep results in an increase in grehlin production and a decrease in leptin, an appetite suppressor, among other things.

This increases appetite.

Can you see where this is going?

So pay attention to how much sleep you get. Get more of it. Make it good sleep. Not broken.

In health,

Todd
