It's a never-ending cycle — you don't work out because you're sleepy, and then you gain weight because your daytime fatigue leads to bad food choices. Breaking this cycle can be as easy as convincing yourself to work out when you're getting sleepy.
It makes sense, really — sleep has a big influence on how hungry we feel and the type of food we choose to eat. So, when our sleep is erratic it can mess with our metabolism and urges to binge.
Spoiler alert — did you know that RLS is not a sleep disorder? It's actually a neurological disorder. Mind blowing, right?
