Did you know that if we don’t get adequate amounts of quality sleep then this can increase the production of a hormone called ghrelin in our bodies. This hormone sends messages to our brain to tell it that we are hungry and that it needs more calories. We also stop burning those calories as the body thinks there is a shortage which is why weight loss may be harder.
Have you ever found yourself more hungry than normal after a rubbish nights sleep? It’s the ghrelin 😬
