Less Sleep Leads to Weight Gain


Excuse us, we’re going to go to bed now. While research has long existed that less sleep can lead to weight gain, a new study released on Monday has found that the results are immediate and dramatic—that just losing a few hours of sleep a few days in a row will lead to an immediate weight gain. Getting less than five or six hours as an adult can put you at a higher risk of being overweight, while children who get less than 10 hours of sleep are more likely to be overweight. In this study, University of Colorado researchers found that less sleep actually caused participants to burn more calories—but they ate much more, presumably to help stay awake.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
