    Sleep problems

    If you think alcohol helps you sleep, you're not alone. A government survey found that 58 per cent of Brits are unaware that alcohol can disrupt sleep.

    Although it's true that alcohol will help you fall asleep faster, it interferes with the normal sleep cycle, causing you to wake up during the night and feel unrefreshed in the morning.

    Alcohol is also a diuretic, and stimulates the body to excrete fluid, making it more likely you will need to go to the loo during the night.

    Caffeine can be a killer alright.

    They say if you are failing to get to sleep the best thhing to do is get out of bed, the logic being that you will subconciously begin to associate being unable to sleep with being in your bed/bedroom. Thus prolonging the problem. So general advice is, go downstairs or into another room and read for a while until you feel ready to sleep.

    Sleep plays a huge part when it comes to weight loss, I like to get in at least 8 hours sleep a day for me to function properly as you can burn up to 1600 calories on an 8 hour sleep
