Connection between sleep and weight.

Saturday, July 21, 2012

"Research has already shown that people who sleep less than seven hours a night tend to have a higher body mass index (BMI) than people who get more sleep. The biological mechanisms linking sleep deprivation and weight gain are numerous."

    I am living proof that this is true. I have had sleep apnea for many more years than I realized.

    Probably spent about 8 to 10 years undiagnosed. I was so tired I could barely put one foot in front of the other. No energy to do much besides eat. Would do better for awhile, then would backslide.

    Once I was diagnosed and treated I was able to begin to lose some weight.

    Now that my back is better as well as sleeping more, I am losing once again.

    Great point to make.

    Thanks. I guess that is partly why I cannot lose like I would like to... plus other factors.
