Your sheets probably look awfully inviting after a long day at the office, but if you're currently trying to lose a little extra weight you've probably had to cut back significantly on your snoozing. New research suggests that sleeping more may actually help you take off unwanted pounds.
Presented at a recent conference, researchers discovered that how you sleep can affect body weight control, reports Science Daily. Studies also showed that sleep deprivation may have long-term ramifications for not only how many calories you consume, but how much energy you're able to burn off.
Participants in the study who experienced shorter periods of sleep were hungrier than those who slept through the evening, according to the source. After one night of interrupted sleep, volunteers were less active, while staying up for an entire night reduced the amount of energy that participants had.
While a restful night's sleep may help you achieve your weight loss goals, a product like Bliss Fat Girl Sleep can also be a great tool to have at your disposal. Formulated with a special lavender-infused slenderiZZZe complex that can help reduce dimples for up to six hours, this cellulite-fighting cream is sure to help you get the body of your dreams.
