For example, blood sugar imbalances can cause the hormone cortisol to be released as we sleep, which can cause us to wake during the night and feel hungry.
Stress, shift work and other lifestyle factors can also have negative impacts on our sleep. The FoodForSleep Programs provide tools to help you manage various lifestyle factors.
