We each have different food preferences, different lifestyles and even different digestive systems. (That's right, your digestive tract, or gut, is biologically unique to you, and so you process food differently than others.) This can make decisions concerning what to eat for weight loss very confusing.

A good night's sleep is nature's beauty elixir. During sleep, your body is recovering from the work of the day, but it is far from inactive. While sleeping, your body is busy restoring energy, processing and synthesizing information in your brain, strengthening and repairing muscle and tissue, and regulating your hormones.
To do all this and truly thrive during the day, the National Sleep Foundation recommends that adults get 7-9 hours of sleep per night.

Sleep is just one of the things we can do more of to help with weight loss. In my coaching practice, I help my clients implement good habits around sleep so that they reap the benefits of this natural beautifier and feel their very best. For most people, a good night's sleep is truly a gift.
Wishing You Good Health Every Day,
