A new study has found that getting more sleep can help you lose weight. The study, which was conducted by the University of Michigan, found that people who slept for eight hours a night were more likely to lose weight than those who slept for six hours a night.

The study followed a group of people for two weeks, and found that those who slept for eight hours a night lost an average of two pounds more than those who slept for six hours a night. The eight-hour group also had a higher level of energy and felt less hungry than the six-hour group.

The study’s lead author, Dr. Timothy Pyne, said that the findings show that getting enough sleep is important for weight loss. “This is the first study to show that extending sleep can help people lose weight,” Pyne said. “We found that people who slept more not only lost more weight, but they also had higher levels of energy and felt less hungry.”

Pyne said that the findings could have important implications for public health, as obesity is a major problem in the United States. “If we can find ways to help people get more sleep, it could be a simple and effective way to help people lose weight and improve their health,” Pyne said.

The findings of the study are published in the journal Sleep.

  1. It’s great to see a study like this that confirms what many of us have long suspected – that getting enough sleep is important for weight loss. This is something that I will definitely be paying more attention to in my own life.

  2. These findings are really interesting! It makes sense that if you’re well-rested, you would have more energy to exercise and make healthier food choices. Getting enough sleep is so important for overall health and it’s great to see a study showing that it can also help with weight loss.
