What is Insomnia?

Insomnia is a sleep disorder that causes trouble sleeping or staying asleep, and getting quality sleep. This happens even if you have the time and the right environment to sleep well. Short-term wakefulness may be caused by stress or changes in your schedule or environment. It can last for a few days or weeks.

Symptoms of Insomnia

  • Difficulty falling asleep at night
  • Daytime tiredness or sleepiness
  • Irritability, depression, or anxiety
  • Forgetfulness 
  • Difficulty paying attention and focusing on tasks
  • Increased errors or accidents
  • Waking up during the night

Causes of Insomnia

  1. Poor sleep habits. Poor sleep habits include an irregular bedtime schedule, naps, activities before bed, an uncomfortable sleep environment, TVs, video games, or smartphones that can interfere with your sleep cycle.
  2. Overeating in the evening. It causes you to feel physically uncomfortable while lying down. It also leads to a backflow of acid and food from the stomach into the esophagus after eating, which may keep you awake.
  3. Stress. Concerns about work, school, health, finances, or family can keep your mind active at night, making it difficult to sleep. Stressful life events or trauma can also trigger attacks.
  4. Travel or work schedule. This includes jet lag from traveling across multiple time zones, working a late or early shift, or frequently changing shifts.

Insomnia and the HCG Diet

An unbalanced sleep pattern can have a direct effect on your weight. It triggers your hormones to deposit an extra amount of fats. An adequate amount of sleep plays a role in reaching your goals through the HCG diet. Make some changes to your sleeping pattern during the HCG diet.

How Does Insomnia Make You Gain Weight on the HCG Diet?

People who lack sleep at night are at risk of depositing more weight due to overeating during the day. Five hours of sleep every night during a busy week leads to weight gain. Lack of sleep increases your risk of obesity due to repetitive sleepless sessions every night.

When you are sleep deprivation, you are most likely to grab a bag of chips or have energy drinks to stay awake. Take note that junk foods and processed beverages have loads of calories that can ruin your VLCD. Lack of sleep leads you to resort to your comfort foods to increase energy and stay productive in your work. Other effects of sleep deprivation:

  • Lack of sleep triggers high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease.
  • The feeling of sleeplessness will reduce your energy levels.
  • Tiredness due to lack of sleep causes poor body functions, digestion, and metabolic rate.
  • Sleeplessness develops your habit of being dependent on comfort foods. 
  • Restlessness will trigger your body to start storing more fat and therefore gain more weight.

Get a sufficient amount of sleep every night regardless of how busy your schedule is. Rest when your mind is tired boosts brain functions and increases your metabolic rate and reduces your dependence on extra food.

Cures of Insomnia When on the HCG Diet

A cup of tea can help. It has antioxidants and relaxing effects on your brain. Drink a cup of sugar-free tea an hour before you sleep. Tea can also boost your metabolic rate and digestion during the HCG diet. 

Maintain proper hydration. To counter the chemicals that delay siesta, ensure you drink water.  It will make you feel less hungry and boost your brain focus. Long-term restlessness deposits fats in your body. An adequate amount of water lowers fat deposition and staves off excess calories.

Meditate if you have time. Spend time relaxing your brain through meditation. Go for a quiet place and breathe until you feel calm. When your brain tension calms down, it will boost your sleeping routine.

Avoid gadgets. The radiation from your screens activates your brain and reduces your time of sleep. Avoid too much exposure to your computer, TV, and mobile phone at night.
