    Each additional hour of exercise reduced the risk of become obese by 6 percent during a 6-year follow-up according to study from researchers at the the University of Turin in Turin, Italy. Sleep Duration

    Sleep duration: 6.3 hours vs 7.2 hours



    Subjects: 1282 people

    The study followed 1282 Caucasian people, aged 45–64 years, who were not obese at the start of the study, for 6 years to try and determine factors that were associated with an increased risk of obesity.

    After 6 years, 103 had become obese, and 1179 had not.



    Conclusion: Sleep restriction, higher home temperature and restaurant meals were associated with increased risk of obesity

    “Sleep restriction, higher home temperature and regular consumption of [ restaurant meals ] might represent lifestyle contributors to the obesity and hyperglycemia epidemics,” the paper concluded. “Avoiding these behaviors could be a potential adjunctive non-pharmacological strategy for preventing the obesity and hyperglycemia epidemics.”



    Comment: Exercise is better at helping to reduce weight gain rather than for weight loss

    Research shows that the amount of exercise most people are willing to do—such as walking 45-minutes per day—does NOT cause much weight loss at all.

    Research suggests that regular exercise is better at helping to maintain weight and reduce weight gain rather than causing weight loss.

    Of course, if you exercise enough, you will lose weight, but the amount of exercise required to lose a substantial amount of weight is more than most people are willing to do.
