The country’s best known sleep expert presents the latest knowledge and research on how getting more shut eye can help women lose weight--and gain health, productivity, and happiness.
While most of us understand the basic principle of dieting--we lose weight when we consume fewer calories than we burn--new groundbreaking science shows us that there is much more to it than that. In fact, our metabolic rate depends not only on age, gender, and medical issues, but also on how well we sleep. Sleep affects the hormones that make us feel hungry or full. Once the relationship between managing sleep, hunger, and weight loss is understood, it can be applied to any diet to maximize results.
One of the first psychologists to become board certified in sleep medicine, Dr. Breus teaches readers how to lose weight without special foods or strenuous, expensive exercise regimens. The program is completely natural and helps to unlock the process of healthy weight balance that comes with good rest.
Far from a traditional sleep book, The Sleep Doctor’s Diet Plan helps readers make lifestyle and food choices that will allow them to optimize rest and make time for something everyone always wants more of in today’s stressful world--sleep! This book will not only help readers look and feel better, it will do wonders for their health, too, by improving immune function, reducing blood pressure, and much more.
