Learn about the connection between sleep and your weight and overall health, so you can slim down without suffering through depressing diets and endless exercise.
Americans spend billions of dollars each year on health foods, and even more billions on weight loss aids. Yet most of them never look at one of the best ways to improve your health and keep your weight down: getting a good night’s sleep.
As the obesity epidemic in America increases even more (now 68% of the population are overweight or obese), this timely guide looks at the benefits of high-quality, restful sleep for your health.
In this guide you will discover what sleep is and the connection between sleep, wellness and weight loss. You will also learn what diseases can possibly be avoided through regular, restful sleep.
This special report also discusses many common sleep disorders, such as insomnia, sleep deprivation and sleep apnea. It gives invaluable advice on how to improve your quality and quantity of sleep, and what to do if your sleep cycle begins to suffer.
