Lose Weight While Sleeping!

Please forward this to a friend or family member you feel it would benefit.


Did I get your attention?

Yes? Good.

Dr. Mark Hyman recently wrote an interesting piece on sleep and the importance of getting enough of it to help us lose weight and gain health.

He mentioned that sleep deprivation makes you fat -- AND leads to depression, pain, heart disease, diabetes, and much more.

Once patient of his in particular lost 50 pounds and lowered his blood pressure after sleeping throughout the night. His particular case involved having sleep apnea but once treated with a device to keep his airway open at night, he experienced those dramatic changes in his body.

You may not have sleep apnea however if you're like this individual and aren't sleeping adequately throughout the night, you're potentiall setting your body up for problems down the road.

Dr. Hyman also points out that when you are sleep deprived, your cortisol rises -- and so do all its harmful effects, including brain damage and dementia, weight gain, diabetes, heart attacks, high blood pressure, depression, osteoporosis, depressed immunity, and more.
