If you are suffering from an untreated sleep disorder, it’s no wonder you are losing the uphill battle with your weight. Increased metabolism. Balanced appetite-hormones. More energy to exercise. Weight loss success. It all starts with healthy sleep. Getting your appetite-hormones, metabolism and energy-levels balanced can be difficult, but we’re here to help.
Are you fighting:
- A Little, or a Lot of Weight to Lose - Sleep apnea and obesity go hand in hand, but many people who are not considered obese also have sleep disorders which considerably impact their energy levels and active lifestyle. Getting your weight under control will help decrease your likelihood of having obstructive sleep apnea.
- A Low Metabolism Metabolism, blood pressure, insulin resistance and other physical “insults” to your body are the direct result of untreated sleep apnea.
- Managed Hunger - Research shows that sleep deprivation confuses our appetite-regulating hormones. It decreases leptin, the hormone that tells the brain, ‘You’re full now, you can stop eating,’ by up to 15%. And increases ghrelin, the hormone that signals, ‘You’re hungry, you need to eat,’ by up to15%.”
- Motivation and Energy to Exercise - It’s a vicious cycle. You sleep poorly, are less motivated to exercise and so you gain weight. In almost all cases obesity causes sleep apnea - but even moderate weight loss can make it easier to treat and less threatening to your health.
