Keto and Sleep Go Together
Getting a good night’s sleep is not only good for you, it could make or break your keto diet.
How? For one major reason.
Good sleep is an anti aging weapon. Part of what makes it anti aging is that it lets the hormones work. When the good hormones work, weight loss is a whole lot easier.
Around 10 pm the body wants to unload a bunch of good hormones into the system. But it can only load the good hormones if you are asleep.
It’s like a train leaving the station. The trains are leaving between 10 pm and 2 am.
The earlier you catch a train, the longer you will be in the ‘anti aging’ part of the ride.
When the body is able to load the good hormones into your system, then the anti aging starts to happen.
We Want Less ‘Bad’ Hormones
Also, you will generally have less ‘bad’ hormones, like cortisol. That's one big reason keto and sleep go together.
Cortisol is your ‘fight or flight’ hormone. When you walk around a corner and there’s a huge vicious dog stanging there, you get that surge of weird fright through your body. That’s cortisol, which tells adrenaline to start.
All that then tells the body to start storing fat! Yes, if you aren’t calm, if you are having anxiety, your body goes into weight gain mode.
I know, there are many causes of being anxious, but there’s one you can at least try to control.
Sleep. Get enough, and get it during the right hours. 10 pm to 2 am.
Tips to get good sleep?
Don’t eat for 4 hours before bed.
Turn off TV a while before sleepy time.
Try to take some deep breaths and calm yourself down, especially your mind.
Have the room DARK. Not kind of dark, really dark. Like ‘no lighted clock radios’ dark.
Melatonin is the hormone that tells us to sleep, and it doesn’t come out until the lights go out.
Keto and sleep go together. Sleep helps keto work, it’s as simple as that.
Happy Sleeping! But more important, happy waking!
