Sleep is one of the four key pillars of the Re:Wild With JC's healthy lifestyle system: ‘Sleep, Eat, Move, Repeat’.
Not only is sleep the most under-utilised health-optimising fat-loss tool, but the cheapest and often easiest to implement. Quality sleep increases growth hormone, and in non-obese individuals, fasting has also been shown to improve sleep. Sleeping and fasting really do support each other and go hand-in-hand!
The best news is that you can use sleep to optimise and make your fast easier. Since you’re going to be skipping a meal, and most people start by skipping breakfast, you can get a double-whammy by having an early dinner the night before and sleeping through breakfast time on a weekend.
Fasting doesn't have to be complex and it can benefit many aspect of your life beyond your weight. If you'd like to learn more about fasting, which type of fasting method is best for you and how to fast correctly, check out The Fasting Playbook for more.
