from wikipedia.... an excuse to have a good lie in......it helps you get thin

Professor Cappuccio of the University of Warwick has recently discovered that short sleep duration may lead to obesity, through an increase of appetite via hormonal changes. Lack of sleep produces ghrelin which, among other effects, stimulates appetite and creates less leptin which, amongst its many other effects, suppresses appetite.

Leptins? I am all for shifting responsibility. why not? I just like to eat. and sleep. two big activities.

that's interesting. I've always wondered why I get hungrier out of proportion to the time I've been awake when I do an all-nighter. Now I know!

I can vouch for the lack of sleep theory.

No sleep = fatigue = craving of carbs = kit kats = tight clothes.

Also

No sleep = time in front of telly in early hours = more time for eating = tight clothes

Dhamaka says:


but..... I ate my KitKats about 8pm... all 8 of them.... so maybe I should try that again...

No sleep= more caffeine to stay awake and junk food...can vouch for that

Dhamaka says:

ah.. caffeine always kills my apetite.
Gives me indigestion, but kills my apetite...

minkey says:

So a balance of kit-kat and caffeine...do they do one with coffee???? haven't had a kit-kat in years :-(

4th Sep 2007, 08:20

Dhamaka says:

they do extra-chocolate kit-kats, mint kit-kats, orange kit-kats, dark chocolate kit-kats.... but for coffee I thing the original milk chocolate would still be the best

FilbertFox says:

late night cup of tea is better than coffee. Earl Grey, not to strong. And breakfast cereal straight from the box at 3 a.m. = tight clothes

paintist says:

I guess that while we are sleeping we are not eating....clever that :-)

OJ says:

My dad has a chronic insomnia problem and unfortunately a weight problem too and it's very obvious that the two are related.

paintist says:

a difficult thing to sort out OJ....I would dearly like more than 3hrs sleep a night, and to be a lot slimmer.....

4th Sep 2007, 12:56

OJ says:

You have my sympathy paintist. I really worry about my dad, it's a long-term problem.

any professor who's nearly named after a popular frothy beverage must be listened to!

FilbertFox says:

i too would like more sleep, the only way this will happen is when poor old Lady Fuchsia eventually pops her clogs. The only times i ever manage to lose any weight is with lots of exercise and i have been very inactive for best (worst) part of a year apart from the odd bit of cycling, i am now awaiting surgery on my back, then hopefully i can get back to the pool and gym as well

minkey says:

OJ: I went through similar problem two years ago. Starting insomnia then 5 hours then less than 3 then would sometimes stay awake....all night :-( obviously did put on weight as had to have food/energy to stay awake during the day
In the end used few things, but the one which helped was acupuncture.

That's a bit harsh Viv.
