Sleep the Pounds Away

Sleep the Pounds Away
Studies show, and the PureTrim® system teaches, that without sufficient "mattress time," you will be far less successful with your weight loss efforts and your overall health will suffer as well.
in addition, according to the results of the National Sleep Foundation's annual "Sleep in America" poll, which were released March 4, there is an interesting link between exercise and sleep.
The study found that the more people exercise, the more likely they are to have satisfying sleep.
That means, the solution to your sleep woes—and therefore to weight loss hurdles—may be simple: exercise.
The poll showed that whether people were vigorous exercisers who did running, cycling, swimming, or competitive sports or were moderate exercisers, who took part in activities such as yoga, tai chi, or weight lifting, or even light exercisers who participated in lower-effort activities like walking— all exercisers reported a good night's sleep at least 56 percent of the time.

Non-exercisers reported that they had a good night's sleep only 39 percent of the time.The 2013 Sleep in America poll seems to validate the idea that even a little bit of exercise can make dramatic differences in a person's ability to sleep well.
"If you are inactive, adding a 10-minute walk every day could improve your likelihood of a good night's sleep," said Max Hirshkowitz, PhD, task force chair.
"Our poll data certainly find strong relationships between good sleep and exercise," added Hirshkowitz.
Exercise helps you burn calories, lose weight, and get stronger. It also helps you get better sleep! Good sleep is fundamental for good health, productivity, and happiness.
