Craig, my cofounder of Nustrength and cohost, and I are back! In this episode, we are digging into everything about sleep and offering up tips to get a good night's sleep.
So many women that come into our program struggle with it. When I was on those bloody restrictive diets, I also struggled with sleep. Then, over the past two years, when we were trying to conceive, I had so much trouble sleeping. I was so stressed, and I think the stress and emotional stuff are often underrecognized as a problem when it comes to sleep, even causing disruptions when you’re doing everything else right.
So, in this episode, Craig and I discuss:
➡️What can help you de-stress and sleep better
➡️Nutritional and caloric considerations for sleep
➡️Calculating your maintenance calories
➡️Movement, steps, and sleep
➡️Morning and bedtime routines
➡️Salt and the stress hormones
➡️Tracking sleep
➡️How sleep improves performance
