Do you toss and turn desperately trying to fall asleep? Keep in mind what you eat because what we eat can make us relax and get restful sleep. Indeed food plays a key role in our sleep patterns.
Watch your weight because recent scientific evidence from a New Zealand study shows a correlation between obesity and sleep disturbances. Leptin, a hormone released in your fat tissue, might be responsible for waking you up in the middle of the night. Moreover carrying excess weight can cause difficulty in breathing and also cause snoring which could wake you up. It may lead to sleep apnea which is a disorder that causes you to stop breathing for up to a minute and a half during your sleep.
It is essential to lose unhealthy fat for you to get a good night’s sleep.
It is no problem to lose fat: follow our weight loss programme designed specifically with sleep disorders from our specialist nutritionist in Edinburgh.
Iron deficiency, well known for the anaemia condition, might cause leg spasms related to a restless leg syndrome condition, and hence interrupting your sleep. It is recommended that you consume plenty of green leafy vegetables, pulses and nuts which are a good supply of iron to reduce this risk.
