Lose Weight in Your Sleep

A new diet says you can shed pounds while you snooze.

Recently a doctor told Glamour magazine that women could lose weight in their sleep, without even changing their diet.

Sure, research has linked weight loss to sleep before, but shedding pounds requires proper nutrition and hours at the gym ... right?

Well, according to the diet plan -- that's being promoted by J.Lo, a new mom herself -- you don't need to change your eating habits at all.

The Sleep Diet merely requires:

  • You nab seven and a half hours of sleep per night.
  • No caffeine after 2:30 p.m. or alcohol within three hours of bedtime.
  • Hit the hay at the same time every night and wake up at the same time every morning.

Previous research has shown skimping on sleep leads to weight gain because fatigue stimulates the hormone that regulates hunger and triggers appetite.

Sounds easy, right? Maybe not for moms, who on average get five hours of shut-eye per night, according to a poll taken by Mother and Baby magazine. And according to the National Sleep Foundation, some women require as many as nine hours of sleep a night.

Do you think this diet is realistic? Would you try it?

Hey there, wonderful write-up, a colleague from the fashion market linked me to your web site. I’m a visiting tutor at Goldsmiths University, London, and am around the editorial board of an online forum for sector specialists. You gave me some great tips for my own web page.

Interesting theory, maybe its worth trying - I agree that 8 hours of sleep are inevitable for our body to work properly. Ornela from cheap hosting

Well, another diet method, and surprise… there’s nothing to do… Well, that’s just to good to be real. So let’s be serious, a diet is a serious thing, and it can’t be done without effort. Promising the opposite is irresponsible.

I had got a desire to begin my own business, but I didn’t have enough amount of cash to do this. Thank goodness my close colleague suggested to use the loan. So I received the consolidation loans and made real my desire.
