I think both continual stress and not getting to REM sleep every night affect my weight loss journey for the worse.
Continual stress produces hormones that prevent me from burning calories as I should.
Not sleeping my necessary 7 hours or more at night I miss my REM sleep. This prevents me from getting the calorie burn during REM sleep and also limits, or prevents, production of my hunger barometer hormone which is built up in REM sleep and causes me to eat too much of the wrong things the next day.
But now that I know these 2 things I am doing something about it. I am meditating ten minutes every day and breathing deep five minutes every day. And I am getting to bed by 10 pm every night and waking at 7.View Thread
