Insomnia and Weight Gain
« on: 31/01/2007 05:35:36 »
Recently ive come across alot of articles which has talked about the relationship between not sleeping and gaining weight...i believe its to do with the metabolic rate being slowed down and the hormones(?) which regulate your appetite being under released or over released.....can anyone say they feel they have put more weight on as a result of bad sleeping patterns?

 I very rarely eat in the middle of the night.. After dinner is usually it until 10:00 am or 12:00 sometimes.. I have been trying to grab fruit in the morning as I have started skipping breakfast not on purpose, just not paying attention to the time..
