Do all sedentary activities lead to weight gain?: Sleep does not - Source: Current Opinion in Clinical Nutrition and Metabolic Care, Sep 4, 2010

  [ 10 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By JP Chaput, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • September 15, 2010


Purpose of Review: To discuss the benefits of having a good night's sleep for body weight stability.

Recent Findings: Experimental studies have shown that short-term partial sleep restriction:

• Decreases glucose tolerance,

• Increases sympathetic tone [blood vessel constriction],

• Elevates cortisol concentrations,

• Decreases the satiety hormone leptin,

• Increases the appetite-stimulating hormone ghrelin,

• And increases hunger and appetite.

Short sleep duration might increase the risk of becoming obese, because it does not allow the recovery of a hormonal profile facilitating appetite control.

Lack of sleep could also lead to weight gain and obesity by increasing the time available for eating and by making the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle more difficult.

Furthermore, the increased fatigue and tiredness associated with sleeping too little could lessen one's resolve to follow exercise regimens.

Summary: Short sleep duration appears to be a novel and independent risk factor for obesity. With the growing prevalence of chronic sleep restriction, any causal association between reduced sleep and obesity would have substantial importance from a public health standpoint.

Future research is needed to determine whether sleep extension in sleep-deprived obese individuals will influence appetite control and/or reduce the amount of body fat.
