If you are reading this blog then you are most likely in the small percentage of Americans that watches what they eat, and exercises on a regular basis. We spend a lot of time learning about nutrition and pushing our bodies to new limits. However, there is one piece that is still missing for many people...and that is adequate amounts of sleep! The Zone is centered around controlling and maintaining insulin levels in the body. However, lack of sleep can impair the bodies sensitivity to insulin which can lead to:
1. Abdominal Adiposity= belly fat
2. High circulating blood glucose
3. High blood fats- (triglycerides)
4. High blood pressure (hypertension)
Are you getting enough???? Post thoughts to comments.
