surfing the net you really do find the weirdest things… this time i stumbled upon a Sloth’s dream dieting method - The Sleep diet. In the Washingtonpost website, the article say messing up you’re sleeping pattern or not getting enough sleep could cause more damaged than being caught by ur boss at work.. or being playfully attacked by the girlfriend cuase she want attention..
…The analysis of a nationally representative sample of nearly 10,000 adults found that those between the ages of 32 and 49 who sleep less than seven hours a night are significantly more likely to be obese.
this other website - meltdown.com says a few very interesting stuff which could help explain why sleeping is great, and help lose weight
…sleep ranks with great food and terrific sex as one of life’s greatest pleasures. Your body slows down to rebuild and replenish. Brain waves fall to just 5 cycles per second, down from over 14 cycles per second in the waking state. Your metabolism falls to its lowest rate, your basal body metabolic rate…
… Because your body burns 65% of its daily calories keeping your basic body functions going. While you’re dreaming, your body is converting that hated fat into adenosine triphoshate (ATP), the chemical energy your body uses as fuel.
there are other site that thinks sleeping does other stuff related to mermory control… it goes to to show that the sloths is for the right stuff!! hehehe
