I'm new to this forum and I have a question about the importance of sleep for weight loss. I have been trying to lose weight for quite some time now, but I've hit a plateau and can't seem to shed those last few pounds. I recently read that getting enough sleep can greatly impact weight loss, and now I'm wondering if my lack of sleep is the culprit behind my stalled progress.
I have a pretty busy schedule and often find myself staying up late to finish work or run errands. I rarely get a full 8 hours of sleep, and when I do, it's usually interrupted by my tendency to toss and turn throughout the night.
So my question is, how important is sleep for weight loss? And how can I improve my sleep quality to aid in my weight loss journey? I've tried drinking herbal tea and taking melatonin supplements, but they haven't really helped. Are there any other tips or tricks that you all have found effective in getting a good night's rest? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
