Sleep Linked to Weight Loss

A recent study shows that there may be a link between losing weight and sleeping. This study included two groups of overweight individuals who sleep in a sleep lab for two separate periods of two weeks. Their diet was kept the same, but the amount of hours they slept for these periods was changed. For one period, the subjects slept for 8 ½ hours and in another period they slept for 5 ½ hours.

What they found was that subjects lost around the same weight, but during the 5 ½ hour period they lost more muscle compared to fat.

The study was by the Annals of Internal Medicine. Kristina Sargent, D.C. from provides tips for sleeping and health.
