Sleep and Weight Loss

There is a notion among college students that sleep is not necessary, and that any missed sleep in one's youth can be recovered by "sleeping in" later in life. However, the amount of sleep a person gets directly affects how much he or she weighs.
The more sleep you get, the more growth hormone your body produces. Growth hormone maintains your body's lean muscle mass, and decreases body fat.
When people don't get enough sleep, they feel hungry all the time. The reason for this is because their bodies are not producing enough hydrocortisone.
Hydrocortisone controls a person's appetite as well as regulating glucose metabolism, blood pressure, insulin release, and immune system function.
