Getting a good amount of sleep helps with weight control, says W. Chris Winter, MD, author of The Sleep Solution. Research has shown that sleep deprivation can create an imbalance of hunger hormones and increase appetite. "When we are shortchanging ourselves in terms of our sleep—school, travel, working multiple jobs, staying up watching Netflix— our brain enters into a sleep deficit," says Dr. Winter. "The brain has limited options for promoting wakefulness when it is truly sleep-deprived, and eating is one." To make sure you’re getting enough rest even when your summer schedule becomes erratic, set an alarm for as close to the same time as possible every day, detach from screens at least an hour before bedtime, and expose yourself to natural light right when you rise.
