Ever wondered why dieting and exercise don't always achieve permanent weight loss? The answer is simple – we need more and better quality sleep. That's right, by sleeping more, you can actually lose weight and, more importantly, keep the weight off.
Recently, Australia was listed as one of the fattest nations on earth, with almost 70% of the population overweight or clinically obese. Not only are we gaining more weight as a society, but with our hectic lifestyles we're also sleeping far less than previous generations, meaning we are more sleep deprived than ever. And it is only recently that scientists have begun to discover how sleep and weight are fundamentally connected.
In this accessible, informative and groundbreaking book, Dr Carmel Harrington explores the fascinating science behind this link, and demonstrates how sleep is one of the most important keys for successful weight loss. This book not only presents the research, but provides simple, easy-to-follow rules, as well as a detailed program on how to lose weight permanently and improve your overall health by getting more sleep.
If you're desperate to escape short-term dieting for long-term success, then look no further. A slimmer, happier, more energised "you" is just around the corner...
