Sleep Can Turn Off Obesity Genes, Study Says


Sleep Can Turn Off Obesity Genes, Study Says.

I think the wide-spread lifestyle of going short on sleep will turn out to be one of the toughest nuts to crack in the quest for answers to the obesity crisis.   Ask a person to try giving up sugar – well, that’s a possibility; bring up the subject of trying lower carbs, well, perhaps; suggest they learn a whole new way of eating – OK, I could try that.  Ask a person to even just try a few weeks of getting sufficient sleep and you had better duck before they throw something at you.

Will lack of sleep be our Waterloo?

I really enjoyed this article – also many interesting comments on it.  Many people report similar stories about going off sugar or going low-carb.
