Properly long sleep, which gives rest, is indispensable for assuring proper functioning of the body, and its deprivation may lead to significant decrease of the mental-physical condition, as well as to the disorder of many systems and organs in the body. Not many people are aware of the fact, that one of the side effects of not enough amount of sleep is the disability of functioning of the mechanisms responsible for the food consumption control. Frankly speaking – if you don't sleep enough, you are hungry and it's much more difficult for you to alleviate appetite. Additionally, because of lack of sleep, you may become more prone to the adverse influence of stress, which causes the increase of the level of cortisol – the hormone, which is catabolic for muscle tissue and makes the work on the body harder. This effect is connected with mental tension, which is often released with... eating sweets! In addition, scientific data indicate that lack of proper amount of sleep makes the process of making rational decisions much harder, which may lead to falling into eating a chocolate bar or a doughnut much easier.
Stress itself is nothing to be worry about, provided it is not drastically strong or permanent. Because of the long-lasting stress, human body starts to change its functioning. Constant mental tension may cause the following results:
cardiovascular system disorder,
lipid economy disability,
insulin-glucose economy deregulation.
For many people consuming food, especially that rich in simple sugars and fats, is an efficient way of alleviating stress. Just the process of chewing foodstuffs may help to lower mental tension and decrease the level of cortisol. Additionally, the increase of blood glucose, which is the result of eating any kind of food product, results in increasing the level of insulin, which leads to the higher transfer of tryptophan to the brain. Tryptophan is an amino acid, from which serotonin is created – the neurotransmiter and relaxing hormone. This is how stress fosters excessive consumption and... makes slimming more difficult.
