6. Set a Bedtime and Stick to It
Sleep and weight are closely related — and the less shut-eye you get, the more likely you are to struggle with excess pounds. Among overweight adults trying to lose weight over the course of a year, those who regularly logged 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night lost more weight than those who usually slept for 6 hours or less, per a June 2019 study published in the International Journal of Obesity.
Lack of sleep spurs the production of hormones that can drive you to eat more, and even lead you to confuse feeling tired for feeling hungry, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
If you need to be up by 6:30 a.m., aim to be asleep by 11:30 p.m. at the very latest.
