Reading Robb Wolf's Paleo Solution has got me thinking more about lifestyle, in particular 2 areas: sleep and stress. Stress messes with you hormonally.
He has prompted me to do a couple of things:
- Totally black out my bedroom so I really sleep in total dark
- Aim for at least 8 hours sleep
- Ease back in general and take it easier.
Anyway, I spotted this abstract today:
Sleep duration and body-weight development during puberty in a Dutch children cohort
Conclusion: Changes in BMI during puberty were inversely related to changes in sleep duration, independent of possible confounders.
