Harrington, CT. The Sleep Diet - Why sleeping well is the missing link to permanent weight loss. (2012) Sydney, MacMillan Press.
As a society, we are sleeping far less than ever before, and carrying
more weight than any other time in history. In this book Dr Harrington
explores the connections between these two seemingly unrelated facts and
demonstrates the critical link between lack of sleep and obesity.
Drawing from the latest sleep and nutrition research,
Dr Harrington reveals the science behind what happens to our bodies
when we don't sleep, and how this critically affects our
appetite-controlling hormones, our metablism and how we think and feel.
She explains why proper sleep is the missing link in the on-going and
often agonising attempts to lose weight. This books shows how to develop
habits that deliver high-quality, restorative sleep. She provides a
plan for healthy eating and a guide to making sure our improved eating
and sleeping habits lead to lasting weight loss. The Sleep Diet is both a
scientifically proven approach and a practical guide to losing weight
and improving overall health and wellbeing.
