We Sleep How We Eat

We Sleep How We Eat | Why is sleeping so important? | Scoop.it
It's no secret: We are what we eat. And turns out, we might sleep how we eat, too.

Found an association between the number of calories consumed and how long the study participants slept. Those who consumed the most were more likely to be "short" sleepers. Interestingly enough, "normal" sleepers were the next type to consume a lot of calories, followed by "very short" sleepers and then "long" sleepers, researchers found.

The impact of poor sleep on craving for carbohydrate is well known.  This may be why there is a link between sleep apnea and obesity.  Poor sleep increases appetite which increases obesity which may cause upper airway obtruction and more sleep apnea that takes us back to an increase in appetite ( a nevere ending cycle).  Anecdotally most people will admit that being up all night at work, or caring for a child results in an almost insatiable appetite the next day.

"Denise Zimmerman’s battle with sleeplessness began 30 years ago, when she was 18. Over the years, as the problem worsened and became chronic, she began to rely on the pharmaceuticals that her doctors seemed eager to prescribe." I am now 18 and i usually sleep from around 1-4am on a regular basis. and with this, i am trying to fix my sleeping habit. If Denise's problem got worse, then i definitly need to fix my sleeping patterns now. And as part of my project proposal fixing my sleeping habit is something I will need to do.

This article has taught me that losing sleep really does have an affect on your daily activity. I thought that it would not have any affect and that I would still have the same energy regardless of how much hours of sleep I got. But given that i am wrong, I would definitly love to sleep more to have more energy through-out the day.
