Sleeping In Could Affect Your Weight

Researchers tracking 300 collegiate females' sleep patterns found that a consistent bedtime, and especially wake time, affected body fat. Women whose sleep and wake time varied more than 90 minutes during the week had higher body fat than those with less than 60 minutes of variation. Researchers believe that sleep pattern disruption affects physical activity patterns and hormones that regulate food consumption, leading to increased body fat.
