Why Not Sleeping Makes You Gain Weight
• When you don't sleep at night, you are in the beta wave frequency and most likely stressed. If you are stressed, you are releasing high amounts of the hormone cortisol. Cortisol is one of the hormones that regulate your appetite. It makes you hungry and want to eat more.
• When you are stressed, the brain panics and tells your body to hold onto every ounce of fat.
• The less you sleep, the less calories you burn, again because of the hormone cortisol.
• If you don't sleep enough at night, the fat cells you do have, will be encouraged to get bigger.
• Not getting enough sleep makes you crave sweets, calorie dense foods and salty, high carbohydrate snacks....and you'll give in to those cravings.
• Insufficient sleep raises the levels of ghrelin, a hormone that tells you to eat. This hormone boosts your appetite, increases fat production and makes your body grow....which you don't want unless you are teenager.
• Lack of sleep lowers the level of leptin, a hormone that tells you, you've had enough. Even if you eat, the lack of this hormone leaves you still feeling hungry.
• Not getting enough sleep will have your body hanging on to the fat you already have. The high level of ghrelin in the body promotes the retention of fat.
• High cortisol levels lower DHEA, a growth hormone that increases muscle mass, speeds up metabolic rate, and releases fat from fat stores for energy. In other words, cortisol, because of lack of sleep, slows down your metabolism, shrinks your muscles, and holds onto you fat.
• Not sleeping depletes the brain of serotonin, a feel good hormone, which can have an effect on your appetite. Depression, anxiety, lethargy, and rage increase, and the body will seek out foods that temporarily raise serotonin, which leads to cravings, which leads to weight gain.
• You eat 10% more calories after not sleeping well.
How Brainwave Entrainment Can Help You Sleep and Take Off Pounds
• Specially designed brainwave entrainment recordings lower the brain's brainwave frequency so that you can sleep.
• The lower the frequency, the more likely you'll sleep.
• Low frequencies release melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep and sleep patterns. If you release melatonin at night, a side effect is the release of serotonin, the feel good hormone, during the day.
• Your heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, and respiration slow down. Your whole body slows down.
• Muscles relax.
• Cortisol levels go back to normal.
• Serotonin levels also go back to normal.
• Ghrelin and leptin levels go back to their proper concentration.
• Blood sugar levels even out.
• Cravings are eliminated
• Your body uses your fat stores for energy.
Brainwave entrainment changes the messages in the brain from "let's hold on to every ounce of fat" to "let's burn that fat for energy."
Getting a good night's sleep will leave you feeling healthier, happier, and skinnier than you would be, if you pulled another all-nighter.
