Article: Could a bad night's sleep make you eat more fatty food - Oh Yes!
#1
http://healthlibrary.epnet.com/GetConten...iid=916951

Looking back it is funny how hindsight is 20/20. I used to say to myself I am getting fatter by the day - what is wrong with me? Why am I eating these foods? And of course, tied to the excess weight is the raise in BP. I would get "Why is your blood pressure so high?" (I am on BP med - and had it quite under control)

Yes, the main thing that got me to the dr to request the sleep study was how people said I snored but in the back of my mind I wondered if my gaining was tied to it too- and yup, I've been losing weight without really trying (one may argue that I am trying since I hook up w/the CPAP each night).

Just wanted to pass this article along to you all -

Sweet Dreams,
Sparkle

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

Not to fret Sparkie, I found your lost weight.

But girl! Just for future reference never tell yourself stuff like "I am getting fatter by the day." Not good programming. Not.

By the way, Congrats on the weight loss thingy. I hope you are now telling yourself "I am losing weight everyday on my journey to a more perfect me........." Or something goofy like that.

First of all ... Congrats

As for me, I have not noticed any difference in term of weight loss or appetite dwindling since started the therapy over 4 years ago

Food gives me a great pleasure, I cannot think of anything else more pleasurable than having some juicy steak served with dollops of mashed potato and some green vegetables ..... washed down with a bottle of Aussie red wine
Please don,t forget the cheese and the dessert .... Coffee

Have a good day everyone ... every new day is a gift from god
Enjoy and make the best of it

I-love-CPAP

Edit: God with a capital G

Thank you Smile

Ugh, you are so right. Its like which way to turn first - I'm posting another thread on the AWAKE meeting I went to tonight (sleep apnea support group) - there was a fascinating presentation given by a nurse practitioner (?) entitled SWEET Dreams: Sleep Apnea and Diabetes. Talk about a lousy spiral....

Thank you for this - you are quickly becoming a beloved CPAP friend Smile You are right - I gotta get the negative talk out of my head. I'm working on that - old habits die hard.

I will start tomorrow - "I am losing weight everday on my journey to a more perfect me... I am losing weight everyday on my journey to a more perfect me..

Thanks

"Make you" eat more fatty food?

That seems like a misnomer. Fatty food can't hold a gun to your head.

There is supposedly a link between seasonal depression and other forms of depression that can increase craving for sweets and carbs, and a lack of sleep (or poor quality sleep) can also chemically cause this, but as humans we have the power of free will, otherwise known as will power, and are not actually compelled to eat more food of any kind, because it is within our power not to.

So it is not so much a compulsion as it is a tug-of-war, and we have to accept that there is a struggle, and on any day we may be winning or we may be backsliding. The lesson here is to get good sleep and participate in good therapy to increase your resistance to craving and to lower your craving. It increases the power of your will and decreases the power of the craving itself, directly. Chemically. If you don't strive for that, you may have more craving or less ability to resist craving, but the eating itself? The giving in to the craving? That is on the eater.
