There are so many things in our life that influence our weight; physical activity, health, stress, our outlook or personality, and our overall lifestyle. It is no wonder that most of us deal with fluctuating weight issues from time to time.
I mean, certainly there are few of us that can remain consistent on so many levels all the time. But we are still surprised when we find that we have gained weight. We cannot imagine what we did differently. After all, it seems that our life is unchanged.
But if we really analyze our lives we might find that perhaps something has changed. Not only have we gained a few or in some cases a lot of pounds, but we have also aged. Other changes have also occurred along the way. We have probably gotten busier with our work and our family life.
We may have some health issues that we deal with now that were non-existent before. Whatever the case may be, if we take a close look we are likely to find several changes have occurred over the years.
One of the changes that are often overlooked is our sleep patterns. Consider and compare the way you sleep now to the way you slept years ago. Obviously sufficient rest is essential to having the energy needed to feeling refreshed during the day.
Without getting enough rest you may not feel rejuvenated much less feel like adding in any physical activities. And without physical activities you are not going to burn the calories needed to stay fit and trim.
Additionally, if you are feeling tired and run down you are more likely to eat foods that are quick and easy to prepare. Those same foods are usually also higher in fat content and thus, add to your problems.
So when you are concerned with shedding a few pounds insure that you are getting adequate sleep. This will enable you to participate fully in physical activities and you will have the energy needed to plan and prepare low fat meals.
