Can Sleep Burn Calories?
doctor, can sleep also burn calories?
From the information you convey, calories are a source of energy needed by humans in activities and processes in their bodies, so that energy will be used when you work, walk, think, or when you sit and read.
When you sleep, energy will also be burned or used mainly for your body's metabolic system for cell regeneration, breathing, heart rate and for the restoration of your stamina.
However, the need for energy or calories when you work or do activities will be greater than when you sleep. So the rest of the calories that are not used will be stored in the form of energy reserves for the body, where this reserve will be used when your body needs additional energy or when you are fasting.
Therefore, energy or calories will be burned while you sleep, and the rest will be stored, so that if you consume excessive food before going to bed, the rest of the energy that is not used will be stored in the body.
If you have complaints related to calorie intake or need information related to the body's daily energy needs, you can consult a clinical nutritionist.
Thus the information we can convey, also read calories.
