Consistent Sleepers are Skinnier
Consistent Sleepers are Skinnier

Prior research has shown how not getting enough sleep can impact your weight, but a new study finds the consistency of your bedtime and wake time can also influence body fat. Researchers from Brigham Young University in Utah studied 330 female university students over the course of several weeks, finding that those with the best sleeping habits had healthier weights. Women with a consistent bedtime and, more importantly, a consistent wake time had lower body fat than those with more erratic schedules. Also, findings showed that getting less than 6.5 or more than 8.5 hours of sleep per night was associated with higher body fat.
