Hungry Much?

Losing weight can be difficult, especially if you find that you must fight against a voracious appetite. There are however a few simple adjustments you can make to your lifestyle that will help you keep your hunger in check. Getting enough shut eye is one. Believe it or not, getting enough rest is just as important as adhering to a healthy diet and exercise routine when it comes to losing weight. The reason for this is because of our hormones. According to the article, Simple Ways to Suppress Your Appetite, sleep deprivation can throw your whole body out of whack, causing hormone levels to fluctuate. Ghrelin, the hormone responsible for increasing one's appetite, rises when one doesn't get enough rest. Thus, getting the recommend seven hours of sleep each night can greatly assist in keeping one's desire for food in check.

That sleep thing helps me a lot. Not just for the hunger, but also in keeping my sanity. I had such a bad rate of sleeping that I couldn't even talk right. :/
