Lack of Sleep Triggers Obesity, Causes Unhealthy Belly Fat


PR BEKASI – Often humans override the relationship between eating patterns and rest or sleep.

In the medical world, some of the serious problems are poor sleep patterns and belly fat.

Research from Naima Covassin, Ph.D., cardiovascular medicine researcher at the Mayo Clinic, shows that sleep deprivation affects human belly fat.

He stated there was a 9 percent increase in total abdominal fat area and an 11 percent increase in visceral belly fat compared to the sleep controls.

Visceral fat is stored in the internal organs and is strongly associated with heart and metabolic disease.

Lack of sleep is often done by teenagers to adults caused by several factors.

According to Virend Somers, MD, Ph.D., Alice Sheets Marriott Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine, revealed that lack of sleep will bring belly fat in a bad condition.

“Our findings suggest that shorter sleep time, even in young, healthy, and relatively thin subjects was associated with increased caloric intake, very small increases in body weight, and significant increases in abdominal fat accumulation,” said Somers.
