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
