How does sleep affect your waistline?

Recommended Posts

About 1 in 3 Americans are getting less than seven hours of sleep a night, and an estimated 83.6 million adults in the U.S. are sleep-deprived.1,2 If you're trying to lose weight, you may be surprised to know the amount and quality of sleep you get might be as influential as your choice of diet and exercise. 

Research continues to confirm that sleep is an important factor in helping you avoid diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and obesity. Notably, sleeping in on weekends — a practice quite common among teenagers — may be more beneficial for adults than you may have imagined. In fact, it may not be simply what your body wants, but also precisely what it needs. 

Weekend 'Catch Up Sleep' Shown to Decrease Body Mass Index 

A study published in the journal Sleep3 involving 2,156 adults aged 19 to 82, indicates sleeping in longer on weekends — also known as "catch up sleep" (CUS) — may positively impact your weight. 

On average, the group of participants who slept up to two hours longer on weekend days than weekdays had a significantly lower body mass index (BMI) than the non-CUS group.

I have heard this before .. I think the lack of sleep is do to all the RF waves that are pounding our heads and to the many things we consume will keep us uneasy . Like sugars and energy drinks, coffee and such .

I think I eat good and now I have all the makings to build a faraday cage around my bed, I really intend to try this now that I will be home more .. EMF " Electromagnetic Fields " are a issue when you try to get good sleep it's to important to eat good . And I to have a huge cell tower just two blocks away from my house and a bunch of high power lines close by this is way I want to build a faraday cage . I don't sleep real good here at home but sleep good in other places away from home so I will try to fix this issue .

Here is a site of interest in re of Electromagnetic Fields : http://emf.mercola.com/  Cell phones and towers

Can Cell Phones Give You Insomnia? : http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2008/02/16/can-cell-phones-give-you-insomnia.aspx

A study suggests that using a cell phone before going to bed could cause insomnia, headaches and confusion. It can also cut your amount of deep sleep, interfering with your body‘s ability to refresh itself.

This to may be of some interest to those of you that would like to try and protect yourself and or loved ones I have one of these .. PROTXS: EMF / WIFI PROTECTION

The World Health Organization classifies cell phone radiation as a "Class 2b. Known Carcinogen" in the same category of Lead, Asbestos, and Engine Exhaust.

I am not trying to sell anything here this is just something I found and I do think it's a good idea; here is the link to their page : PROTXS: EMF / WIFI PROTECTION

One thing I will say here is .. No one will ever take better care of you than you . I believe if a person takes a interest in their self they will feel better and live a better life .

@Cinnamon - I don't think it's the sleep, it's the Super Fudge Brownie Ice Cream.
