Sleep More For Weight Loss

A new study shows lack of sleep can throw off weight loss efforts.

According to CNN Health, research from the University of Chicago showed people trying to lose weight who slept 8.5 hours lost 55 percent more body fat than dieters who slept 5.5 hours.

"The dieters who slept less reported feeling hungrier throughout the course of the study," CNN said, even though "they ate the same diet, consumed multivitamins and performed the same type of work or leisure activities."

So if you're eating right and exercising and not losing a healthy two to three pounds per week, then try getting more sleep in order to see better weight loss results.
