I have previously posted on the relationship between sleep deprivation and weight gain.
Carnie Wison agrees with me:
"Ever since I had my daughter, my focus is not on me; it's on her," says Wilson, who is currently a size 16. "For the past two-and-a-half years, I haven't slept. I am convinced there has to be a link between sleep deprivation and a slower metabolism ... the past year, my workouts have been lazy. I've been snacking on the wrong foods and not drinking enough water."
