Could Losing Weight Help You Sleep Better?

Do you have trouble sleeping?

According to a study by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, losing weight, especially belly fat, can help you sleep better.

The researchers recruited seventy-seven people who were overweight and had sleep problems. Half the volunteers went on a weight-loss diet and exercised. The other half of the group only did a diet.

After six months, the participants lost an average of fifteen pounds, with a fifteen percent reduction of belly fat. The reasearchers also saw both groups improved their sleep score by twenty percent.

"We found that improvement in sleep quality was significantly associated with overall weight loss, especially belly fat." - Dr. Kerry Stewart, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

Another study, published in the journal Sleep, found weight loss due to changes in your diet may improve the quality of your sleep.

"If you're overweight and often feel tired, you may not need to lose all the weight to improve sleep, but rather just beginning to lose that excess weight may improve your sleep abnormalities and wake impairments." - Isaac Perron, University of Pennsylvania
