Find out more about this valuable information source at www.thesleepdoctor.com. Dr. Breus has referred our Glendale sleep apnea office many patients to help them with snoring and sleep apnea. In his recent posting on The Insomnia Blog, he recently reported research findings that sleep deprivation may actually make you eat more. When compared to other women who had slept nine hours, those who had slept four hours took in 329 more calories. When compared to other men who had slept nine hours, those who had slept four hours consumed 263 more calories. If this can happen with only one night of sleep deprivation, when you do the math you can see why sleep disorders such as sleep apnea are highly correlated with obesity.
