Sleep, although important, is sometimes second in thought. People are always so busy worrying about having the proper exercise routines, nutritional plan, and supplement regiment, yet many people deprive themselves of the proper sleep they need during the night. Not getting enough sleep can have an effect on weight gain, and the foods that we eat can have an effect on the quality of sleep we have.
