When dieting or trying to improve body composition, sleep loss can quickly derail your progress while halting muscle gain and fat loss. If you find yourself at a fat loss plateau, perhaps it’s time to consider sleep aids to get more sleep.
Other than the immune system benefits, sleep positively adjusts your mood and brain’s regulatory centers. You might be wondering why that matters if your only goal is to get ‘mo bigger.’ Valid point, but keep in mind, eventually you will reach an age when degenerative conditions occur.
