Good sleep helps lower cortisol levels

Cortisol raises insulin levels.

"...cortisol raises insulin levels and is a major pathway of weight gain. Therefore, reducing your cortisol levels is an integral part of your overall weight-loss effort. Reducing stress levels, practicing meditation and getting good sleep are all effective methods for achieving lower cortisol levels."

Dr. Jason Fung, M.D., nephrologist, in The Obesity Code, p. 252
