Sleep more, the ultimate flat belly diet.
Sep 8, 2011
Did you know that several recent studies have found that getting enough sleep is not only essential for optimizing mental and physical health, but it also helps you from gaining stubborn belly fat? The thinking is that lack of sleep leads to your body’s failure to suppress appetite-suppressing brain and gut hormones … so you eat more. Not only that, lack of sleep results in fatigue during the day, which limits the ability to exercise (and burn those belly fat calories). The message: Prioritize getting your zzz’s at night and stay lean, healthy, and fit.
