Sleeplessness And Being Overweight
In recent times, there has been an increasing number of cases of obesity among our young children, even down to our toddlers.
A visit to any American school brings to focus the enormity of this growing health risk.
Being overweight as we know brings with it various other health issues. But why are our children becoming overweight in such record numbers?
Recent studies show that there is a connection between being overweight and sleeplessness in children. Research suggests that sleep deprivation stimulates appetite enhancing hormones, leading to increased food intake and possible overweight.
This is also true in adults who by reason of work and other family circumstances do not get enough sleep. This leads to tiredness and a hunger for food in order to boost energy, which in turn leads to possible weight gain.
Austin Akalanze from http://www.weight-loss-for-women.net, an Internet content publisher on weight loss suggests that “It makes sense that sleepless children are at a higher risk of being overweight than sleeping children because a sleeping child has a zero chance of stacking up on calories while asleep”.
He further stated, “Children we know, love bad food and every wakeful moment is another opportunity to make a choice for bad food and a vote for being overweight”.
The good news Akalanze went on to say is that, “Parents have a firm control on this. This is not something external and beyond their control”.
