This Book is a Necessity (if you want to lose weight)
on November 1, 2011
As a practicing physician who treats patients with weight problems, sleep is indispensible. Michael Breus has written 2 really good books on the subject and I use his new 5 Sleep Rules with all of my patients. Too many people try to diet more and exercise harder and forget a really basic fact like good restorative sleep. Lack of sleep causes hormone changes that increase hunger (ghrelin) and decrease fullness (leptin) as well as make it harder (cortisol), even when you are following a basically good diet and mild to moderate exercise. For those who diet and exercise and still need to lose weight, this book will help you to understand why sleep is good for you and necessary for weight loss.
