You Snooze, You Lose – Weight

After a long day, many individuals feel the need to relax.

Oftentimes, it’s easy to grab a bottle of your favorite adult beverage to blow off steam and relieve the day’s tensions.

And while the occasional urge to drink is normal, making it frequent can be disruptive to your health and weight loss goals.

Drinking can also negatively impact sleep as the alcohol in your blood interrupts and compromises the recovery effects of your sleep cycle by increasing insulin.
How Does Alcohol Affect Sleep?

While alcohol can make you feel drowsy initially, the quality that drunken sleep provides is not very productive.

Delta Pattern brain activity slows down, decreasing the effectiveness of memory and learning formation. 

At the same time, Alpha Pattern brain activity speeds up, which normally does not occur during sleep.

Combined, these competing brain activities inhibit quality sleep.

Drinking can also lead to more frequent awakenings in the middle of the night because the alcohol blocks chemical receptors in the brain that would normally trigger sleepiness as well as being a diuretic, triggering more bathroom breaks.

Alcohol also stimulates the production of Adenosine, which is a chemical associated with wakefulness.

There’s even a link between alcohol and snoring, which could lead to disrupting your partner.
Worst of all, alcohol blocks REM sleep. 

This is considered the most impactful phase of the sleep cycle.

REM sleep is known to be the optimal restorative portion of sleep and the place memory is consolidated from short-term to long-term.

So drinkers often feel groggy and unrested even after a long night of ‘drunken’ slumber.

Individuals will suffer lower quality sleep on the night alcohol is consumed.
