1. Inadequate Zzz’s!
If you don’t sleep properly or don’t complete your sleeping span of 8 hours, then this habit is surely going to add extra kilos to your weight. The hormones behind this are ghrelin and leptin. The ghrelin is the go hormone. It tells you when to eat. So when you don’t get adequate sleep, the quantity of ghrelin surges. So more ghrelin, more eating and thus more weight gain.
