Why is There Talk of “Fat Burning Sleep”?

Listen to this article

When you rest your brain emits waves known as alpha waves, while when you wake up it begins to emit so-called beta waves. The alpha rhythm not only appears when you dream, it is also possible that it appears in states of deep relaxation or meditation.

When stress appears continuously, the rhythm is altered and beta waves begin to invade your sleep, spoiling your night’s rest. When you have stress you wake up with the feeling of not having rested, or of having had many strange dreams.

Fat Burning Sleep

This nocturnal brain hyperactivity alters the functioning of the hypothalamus, so when you sleep poorly due to stress, appetite control is also altered.
