Are you exercising regularly and trying to diet, yet still can’t seem to lose excess pounds? The problem could be your sleeping habits. About one-third of Americans get fewer than six hours of sleep a night on a regular basis, a trend that could be fueling the obesity epidemic. Sleep deprivation can interfere with your body’s ability to regulate hormones such as cortisol, which play a role in your appetite.
