The link between sleep and obesity

A vicious cycle is one that perpetuates itself. One such physiological cycle is that of sleep and obesity. It's been known for quite some time that being overweight can lead to sleep disorders - snoring, sleep apnea, insomnia to name a few. But recent research has found that a lack of sleep can cause metabolic changes that lead to weight gain. These changes include the production of hormones involved in hunger and how the body handles nutrients.
