As a physician, my work reallyinvoles confronting the number one public health problem of our time i-e over wight and obesity.
Like many people i tend to take my work home, i have struggled with my own weight since i was in the firth grade. But on the bright side, my personal and professional challenges have rally helped me prepare for my talk today., which is_ how to make hard things easier and lose wight too?
Now i know that sounds like and informer show, but actually i believe that we can make any challenge including weight lose easier by applying three simple steps, all rooted in human behavior.
So, let’s get started!
Step 1 – Sleep
What if i told you that i could teach you a technique that would make your grades better, enhance your athletic ability, boost your memory, intensify your focus, increase your creativity, make you funnier, improve your relationships and in fact help you lose weight all within 24 hours guaranteed!
I am not talking about the magic pill from the movie ‘Limitless’. What i am referring to is something everyone knows how to do_ sleep. We should be spending 36% of our lives asleep. But few us do that, to be exact, 4 out of 5 teenagers don’t get the 8-10 hours of sleep they actually need. And this is really concerning, because sleep is or in other words lack of sleep is associated with some serious health problems. In fact it can increase your risk of depression by 500 %. When we go from 7 to 5 hours of sleep per day, we actually double the risk of an early death.
We already know that lack of sleep is already associated with weight gain because we slow our metabolic rate down and we actually increase our cravings for starchy foods.
Your lack of sleep can affect others as well
Skipping out on sleep is not something that is bad for your health only, it can also be disastrous for others as well.
