At a time when losing the baby weight and getting fit again is on my mind I came across this article. It suggests that a lack of sleep can make you fat. It seems that sleep deprivation can cause a weight gain of as much as 2lb in a week. When sleep deprived people have a tendency to eat less breakfast but more snacks. Lack of sleep also slows the metabolism causing the body to burn fewer calories. I guess being up several times a night feeding the baby is not going to help my fitness drive then.
