To Maintain A Healthy Weight, Be Consistent When Going To Bed, Getting Up

November 18, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Research has consistently found that sleep is critical to reaching or maintaining a healthy weight. New research among women, however, has found that it’s not just about getting enough sleep:  going to bed – and getting up – at roughly the same time also have an impact on weight. The research among 300 women at two Western U.S. universities found that participants who went to bed and woke up at, or around, the same time each day had lower body fat. In fact, those with more than 90 minutes of variation in sleep and wake time during the week had higher body fat than those with less than 60 minutes of variation.
