#3 Reason: Poor sleeping habits

This one’s the easiest to understand. All the late nights, parties, friends sleeping over, new bank balances…add up to one big fat reason to not waste time in bed. Late paper submissions, college studies, internship hours, first job anxieties are also part of the mix that causes poor sleeping habits. 

How does sleep affect weight gain? Quite hard. Poor sleep lends to poor energy management, poor eating habits (late night snacking anyone?), poor stress management (we’ve all heard of what excess cortisol does to weight gain), and just bad lifestyle decisions. A tough habit to crack once we’re out of college-life, inadequate sleep plays a big role in weight gain in the late 20s.
