Dr Mark Hyman: Sleep deprivation = 1 pound increase per week

Unlike most of the podcasts, Dr. Mark Hyman records 10-minutes podcasts and videos with bite-sized content on health. In this episode, 3 doctors discuss how stress influences our behaviour and decision making. We all know that. But here’s another reminder.

They discuss that being deprived from sleep will cause impulsive decision making, which in its turn will make you crave carbs and you will therefore ingest 380 kcals more a day (=a pound a week). I’m taking a shortcut here, but being stressed/not connecting with nature/eating processed foods/not sleeping enough, will increase inflammation and cause you to become dumb, fat and die early.
