Burn Fat and Build Muscle by Changing the Way You…

Did you know that there’s more to building muscle mass and losing weight than just diet and exercise? There are a ton of hormonal processes happening in your body right now, and they need to achieve a certain perfect balance in order for your workouts and diet to be really effective. Hard and heavy lifting increases growth factor hormones, for example, and eating produces a hormone called leptin that lets you know when you’re full. The other important player in this hormonal balance is…

Sleep. It seems like a guilty pleasure or something for lazy people, but getting enough sleep is critical to a good hormonal balance. Without this balance, your muscles won’t grow and your body will try to derail your diet. Have you ever had to go into work after a night of little to no sleep? Did you notice that you were hungrier than usual, or that you were craving sweet, high carb foods? That’s because your serotonin levels are off, and your body is trying to feed this deficit with sugar. Similarly, the growth factor hormones from your weight training routines actually build your muscles while you sleep, because of the naturally high levels of HGH (human growth hormone) during sleep.

So try to get 7 hours a night, and make it good sleep by keeping the room dark, quiet and cool, and try to stick to the same bedtime and wake up time each day.
