BodyMedia FIT activity and sleep monitor automatically captures over 5,000 readings every minute including calories burned, activity intensity levels and sleep quality Sleep and weight loss researchers understand the intricate connection between sleep and a body's ability to achieve healthy weight loss goals. The connection between sleep and weight loss is complex and involves the hormones leptin and ghrelin. Leptin, produced in fat cells, signals to your body you're full, causing the satisfied feeling you experience after a meal. Ghrelin, produced in the stomach and pancreas, does the opposite. It signals to your brain it's time to eat. Your body regulates these hormones while you sleep. When you don't get enough sleep, you're left with high levels of ghrelin, telling your brain you're hungry, and low levels of leptin, leaving you feeling unsatisfied, even after a meal. Adequate sleep helps your body maintain proper levels of these hormones.
