The extra time people spend awake usually is sedentary—TV watching, time on the Internet, and sedentary work. Many of these sedentary activities lend themselves to snacking, which also may keep people awake. The extra calories consumed during this time outnumber the calories burned and may contribute significantly to becoming overweight.
Other researchers dispute the above findings that relate overweight and weight gain to hormone levels. Rather, they attribute the overweight and sleep deprivation to lack of motivation for exercise and becoming more tired, which causes a couch-potato effect.
Researchers report that people who sleep less may actually eat less, but perhaps the fewer hours of sleep negatively affect their basal metabolic rate.
Either way, it appears sleep is an important factor in weight management.

1. Thou shall think "choose well" not "diet" – Choose foods that allow you to fill up on fewer calories such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains (oatmeal, whole wheat products, brown rice) and lean protein (breast meat of poultry, legumes, seafood).
2. Thou shall make exercise fun- Pick your favorite aerobic activity and consider the time spent doing this activity "me time."
3. Thou shall eat out wisely- When you eat out, choose a broth based soup or a small salad as a first course. Possibly consider 2 appetizers instead of one entree. Avoid the bread basket and share dessert with a friend.
4. Thou shall not eat out of boredom- Avoid eating to relax or just to keep oneself busy. Instead take a walk, call a friend, or finish that project that you have been meaning to get to for some time.
5. Thou shall not skip breakfast- Starting the day with a high fiber, low-fat breakfast will help you consume fewer calories the rest of the day. How about some yogurt and fruit or a piece of whole wheat toast and peanut butter. Never skip breakfast!
Top 5 Tips to Avoiding the Holiday Weight Gain!
- One way to avoid overeating at a holiday party is to eat a snack before you leave home. If you arrive at a party starving, you’ll be more likely to overindulge. A half hour before heading to the party why not fill up on some fruit and yogurt, whole grain crackers and peanut butter or sliced vegetables and hummus.
- Browse the buffet table before you make a plate. Consider what foods are worth eating and what can be avoided, and then stick to your decision! Why waste calories on foods that don’t bring you pleasure.
- Rule of thumb, don’t drink your calories! Did you know that punches, eggnogs, and mixed drinks can have up to 500 calories per cup? Eat your calories instead of drinking them. Stick to lower calorie or calorie-free drinks such as diet sodas, water, vodka, light beer, or a glass of wine.
- When you are the host or hostess, try offering a few nutritious and lower-calorie foods like fruits, vegetables, and lean meats on the menu.
- Enjoy your favorite holiday treats but take a small portion, eat slowly, and savor the taste and texture of the wonderful foods of the season.
