Skimping on Sleep

Making time for your workouts can mean less time for sleep, but it's important to get enough zzz's if you're trying to lose weight. You need extra energy to keep up with your exercise routine, and skimping on sleep can affect your body's ability to control appetite. Too little sleep increases an appetite-stimulating hormone, so if you don't get enough shut-eye, you may be tempted to overindulge.

If shut-eye tends to elude you, try these tips for falling asleep faster.
