The Science Of Sleep

A new study from the Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity at Yale showing that women are discriminated against because of their weight might be just the thing to kick start your diet this spring! According to the New York Times, "Based on body mass index...the study found that women begin to experience noticeable weight bias — such as problems at work or difficulty in personal relationships — when they reach a body mass index, or B.M.I., of 27." One way to help lose some of those excess pounds might be to get a good eight hours of sleep each night. According to researchers at Laval University in Quebec City, significantly more or less than eight hours of sleep each night could cause you to gain weight.
