Another one on sleep and obesity

Short sleep duration in association with CT-scanned abdominal fat areas

Shorter sleep duration is associated with higher BMI, WC and SFA in men. Further research is needed to explicate the biological mechanisms behind these relationships and to see whether interventions addressing inadequate sleep could treat or prevent obesity by taking gender differences into consideration.

I suppose I should go to bed now.   There have been lots of studies showing this association now.  The mechanisms might not be clear but there is certainly something here.
