20 Facts About Obesity

20. Obesity is Linked to Sleep Loss.

This is quite an interesting fact in the sense that obesity is associated with sleeping issues, but not sleeping at night highly contributes to obesity. For many obese adults, sleep apnea affects the ability to fall asleep and stay asleep, making the issue worse off. In addition, the lack of sleep causes ambiguous hormone levels in the body that can contribute to overeating, eating too frequently, as well as eating comfort foods that are not healthy for the body. If you are having sleeping issues and you are obese, consider talking with your doctor to find ways to stop this from affecting you.
