Weight Gain & Sleep Apnea

People having Sleep Apnea issues may experience unexplained weight gain



There are 2 reasons for that


1.Too Tired To Exercise


2.Hormonal Imbalances



1 .. Too Tired To Exercise


  • Poor quality sleep leaves you with low energy to get up early in the morning & go to a Gym class


  • If you move less & less because you are constantly tired, chances are that the weight will start adding up


2 .. Hormonal Imbalance


  • Due to poor quality of sleep at night, the hormones that control hunger can become imbalanced


  • You may feel you need to eat more because of this hormone imbalance


  • Often, when people are tired, they reach for sweet snacks filled with empty calories to help give them energy


  • A desire to eat more calories paired with a lack of energy to exercise results in OBESITY
