Lack of Sleep May Cause Weight Gain

Lack of  Sleep May Cause Weight Gain Getting an 8 hour sleep night is not just for rest, it is also necessary to avoid weight gain! Studies show that sleep deprivation, getting less than 8 hours of sleep per night, results in weight gain. Losing weight is challenging and requires a lot of focus, so don’t hurt your chances of losing weight by not getting enough sleep! Numerous studies show that sleep deprivation causes increased ghrelin levels and decreased leptin levels. Grehlin stimulates appetite so higher levels, such as caused by sleep deprivation, causes increased appetite and hunger. Higher levels [...]

The Importance of Sleep.

It has been 5 very long months.  When I say long, I teach at a massage school and my class schedule has increased significantly, which I love and wouldn’t change it for anything.  Also my mom has been in and out of the hospital.  With that said, I have not had much sleep.  What I found was that when I don’t get enough sleep not only does my energy decrease, but my cravings increase. I am craving all the bad things like chocolate, ice cream and anything else that is not good for you.  Up until this point I have [...]

New Image, New Body!

It has been 4 months and I still have over 200 days left on this incredible journey.  I am currently down 24 pounds.  I am off from teaching the next two weeks and I am kicking my exercise up.  I have had some time off of The Fresh Diet for a couple of days here and there.  All for good reason. Spending time with friends and family.  The good thing is that I have not gained any of the weight back and even lost a pound.  That is what makes this life style change an amazing adventure.  I have found [...]

I am going into the third month of “The Fresh Diet”. There have been good and bad days. Mostly good. I am not talking about the food. The food for the most part has been really good. The variety and taste have lived up to the Fresh Diet name. Everything is good and fresh. I am down a total of 17lbs. I did hit a plateau but it is starting to come off again. There is a couple of things I would like. I would love to have the choice of granola or the oatmeal on a daily basis along [...]
