Did you know that if you have trouble sleeping you will gain weight? It is also almost impossible to lose weight if you aren’t sleeping well. If you are waking up in the middle of the night, you may have adrenal fatigue, or you may be experiencing blood sugar fluxuations. Try having whey protein before you go to sleep and see if you wake up as much. Whey protein helps stabilize blood sugar, increased glutathione production (an anti-oxidant) and increases growth hormone production as well.
Weight loss programs are useless if they don’t address the underlying reasons why you gained weight in the first place. Hormones, constipation, anxiety, depression and interrupted sleep are the usual culprits.
