A good night’s sleep ‘helps with weight loss’

Getting a good night’s sleep can help those trying to lose weight to achieve their goals, a study has suggested.

Researchers from the European Centre for Taste Sciences in Dijon, France, found that normal-weight young men who did not get a good night’s sleep gained more weight than those who slept well.

Participants in the study ate 22 per cent more calories after the short night of sleep compared to a night when they got ample rest.

Dr Laurent Brondel and his researcher colleagues wrote in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition: “Sleep restriction could be one of the environmental factors that contribute to the obesity epidemic.”

Those hoping to lose weight fast could also try taking a diet pill that has been proven to significantly reduce caloric intake.

Researchers at the University of Liverpool found that Zotrim – a formulation of the plant extracts yerba mate, guarana and damiana – helped dieters to eat 18% fewer calories.

Have you ever tried diet pills?

    Tried the Slim Bomb from you guys and they were fantastic, lost 5lbs in the first few days- was always sceptical about those sort of things, but after I gave those a try I couldnt believe it- recommended them to my friends, family, and work colleagues. I love the new look website for Slimming Solutions and theres loads of info in your diet news section. thanks for all your help- the telephone staff in particular were a great help when ordering.

    Didn’t realise sleep could help with weight loss. Get at least 8 hours a night and I’m still usually knackered. Think I might have to start sleeping longer lol

    did not know that sleep could help to aid weight loss but you learn something new everyday. i tried the trimmers night a while back and found they really worked well while i slept. definately helped me with losing weight.

    Yes, tried those Zotrim recently. Quite good, prefer something that makes me ‘buzz’ but I can see the attraction of these Zotrims.
