Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight by getting more sleep


Avatar n tn The National Sleep Foundation reports that people who sleep less than 6 hours each night have a higher body mass index than people who sleep 8 or more hours. While sufficient sleep is important for anyone attempting to lose weight, it is particularly vital for those who suffer from hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism leads to fatigue and sluggishness, which leads to two problems.
1519805 tn?1291058650 As you mature, it will be more and more difficult to lose weight. However, large amounts of weight gain--with no change in diet or activity--usually hints at a medical condition. So make sure you rule those out first. First of all, there's nothing easy or quick about losing weight. I'm so frustrated with commercials and billboards that promise fast results. A fat camp means you'll lose weight while at camp, but then what happens when you get home?
Avatar f tn Well I wasnt planning on it, but the losing weight sounds great, I also heard it delays your menstrual cycles! So im getting pretty sold on it.
1478333 tn?1287401534 The Finnish Diabetes Prevention study had similar results. A weight loss of 11% of body weight (more than 15 pounds) was associated with more than an 80% reduced risk of getting type 2 diabetes. These results strongly suggest that the more weight you lose, the better chance you have of preventing type 2 diabetes. Does Exercise Help Prevent Diabetes? Most of the people losing weight chose brisk walking, and others started swimming or biking.
978106 tn?1285108401 Sounds like water retention. It doesn't seem possible to gain weight with what you're eating, unless you have a thyroid condition or some other disorder such as Type II diabetes, which can complicate matters. As for exercise, get in what you can. Take the stairs, park far away and walk to the store, school, etc. Or call up a friend and take a stroll around the neighborhood. You don't have to kill yourself to get a decent amount of exercise. If you can exercise, by all means, do.

729886 tn?1232662881 I really don't want to turn this into a lecture but I have pretty strong opinions about diet pills and I'll just say I really don't love the idea that you're taking Phentermine. I'm very wary of any type of diet pill (with the exception of Alli maybe) and a lot of them are very dangerous. Not to mention, diet pills are a short term solution.
11696213 tn?1420470907 Anyone else losing weight? Im not throwing up or anything. I actually feel fantastic dont feel pregnant at all. Im a bigger girl and have been eating healthy (more then usual) and im dropping weight like crazy. Im down 15 pounds. Should I be concerned?
Avatar n tn Sometimes it's just as good, if not better, to lose inches than to lose weight...Since you're losing inches, you're not losing muscle, which is a good thing. If you're exercising quite a bit, it's customary to build muscle, which will keep your weight more stable, but since muscle is more densely packed, a pound of muscle doesn't take up as much space as a pound of fat.
Avatar f tn I just started school again and I've slowly been getting myself onto a normal sleep schedule. Yet, for some reason, no matter how much sleep I get, whether its 4 hours or 9 hours, I'm always tired. Always. I'm dozing off in class uncontrollably & I'm having trouble staying awake. Back in April I lost over 12 pounds due to my bad diet/lack of food. I possibly suffered fr ARFID, which caused me to lose a lot of weight.
10286987 tn?1410261849 Birth control pills can cause weight gain. You should talk to your parents about getting a different type of birth control.
Avatar n tn As person who has borderline sleep apnea I have noticed that the sleep apnea is less noticeable when I've lost some weight. At this time I personally would be doing myself a favor by losing 20-30 pounds. My question to you is 'Are you overweight?' If so, you may want to look into some diet changes so you can lose the weight. I personally found the reality show 'The Biggest Loser' very informative, however I've struggled with getting motivated to lose the weight.
Avatar f tn It's also possible that 166 was not an accurate weight or was due to water weight. Not that gaining 6 lbs in a week is impossible, but it's unlikely. That would require an extra 3000 calories per day. Extra. I doubt you're eating 4500-5000 calories per day. :) More likely, you were closer to 161-162 last week aside from water weight, so the 163 this week is right on target.
Avatar n tn s keeping you from losing weight. By eating regular meals, you can better incorporate a mix of vegetables, protein, whole grains and healthy fats into your diet. Snacking, typically, ends up being fruit, candy bars, crackers, sandwiches, chips and all the things that aren't so good for you and tend to make you, either, gain or hold onto weight.
Avatar f tn Where I'm from, the doctors say as long as it's no more than 10% of their weight then it's ok. Anything more than 10%, they start to worry.
1549468 tn?1345468736 I've tried to answer others questions, but now realize I need an answer...I have been getting 2 1/2 - 4 hours of sleep a night for almost a year now. I am 49, and started having seizures in June 2010. I have lost almost 1/2 my body weight since March, 2010 (down to 98 lbs), and I'm scared to death. I can't stop losing weight, can't sleep, and have no energy. My appitite is nil, but I force myself to eat (I keep it down).
Avatar n tn Recently I had an overall checkup, they checked for pretty much everything. My doc said the test were great. I took the test early in the morning. I checked the lab test online and seen that I had fasting glucose of 105 and according to their online index table it was out of normal range. I emailed my Doc and he said that reading of 105 did not concern him. But is 105 pre-diabetic? I'm 27, male. 6'0 and 160, not overweight at all, in fact I'm too skinny for being a male.
Avatar m tn Hi i have depression and bpd, i am also incredibly overweight but since ive been losing more and more weight the effects of low energy while upright have been getting significantly worse and my GP and mental health doctor are stumped. im 21 male i dont have sleep apnea but struggle to sleep and have restless leg.
Avatar f tn I have lost 40lbs now, but it seems to be slowing down. The doctors where I live I swear are clueless. They always say something at the beginning of my appointment but never make a big deal about it. I have been able to start eating a little more now which is good. I'm hoping that It will just slow down more and more. My last ultrasound last week shows that the baby is fine and growing normally. At least that is a good thing! Thanks for the posts they are all so helpful!
Avatar f tn I had gained 14 pounds now I'm only at 10 more than pre pregnancy weight and dropping yet my baby is getting much bigger weigh wise.....
Avatar f tn Sleep is also more important than a lot of people recognize - studies show that you can lose weight by getting eight hours a night versus the six hours most of us get...
Avatar f tn I'm about 13 weeks and keep losing weight. Not sure why. I eat, but i know I'm not getting the calories I need. I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables mostly because that's what's sounds good. I'm also eating a lot of protein too. Anyone else experienced weight loss?
Avatar f tn I'm a little confused. Is anyone else losing weight? I'm 11weeks 5days. My weight before pregnancy was 180. 6weeks prego my weight was 168, 8weeks was 161, today i'm at 155. I thought in the beginning it was from morning sickness and being actually sick, but for 3 weeks i haven't had a lot of morning sickness since i started drinking sprite and i haven't been sick. I thought for sure by mid 11 weeks i would have gained at least a pound or two. Am I the only one losing?
