Sleeping Improves PostPartum Weight Loss

We’ve probably all heard our mothers say at one time or another that ever since they gave birth to us they haven’t been able to lose those extra pounds they put on during pregnancy.  Several recent studies have found a direct correlation with inadequate sleep and difficulty losing pregnancy weight.  Sleep deprivation is a common problem new moms experience, due to having to care for a newborn, take care of other children at home, juggling multiple responsibilities or postpartum depression.  Sleep deprivation causes hormone fluctuations that can affect appetite and metabolism.  

 One recent study found that new mothers who slept less than 5 hours a day for several months after giving birth were three times more likely to have difficulty losing weight than mothers who were able to sleep 7 or more hours a day.  Sleep experts believe that sleep duration is an independent risk factor for weight retention.  This is true for new moms but also adults in general.  

Getting the proper amount of sleep on a regular basis should be an important part of any weight loss program.
