Nurture Shock: New Thinking About Children Revised

Fat Chance

  • For a long time, television has been blamed for the increase in overweight kids. Obese kids, however, watch no more television than thin kids. Sleep loss increases the hormone that signals hunger and decreases the hormone which suppresses appetite. Sleep loss also elevates the stress hormone which stimulates your body to make fat. Production of the hormone that is essential for breaking down fat is also disrupted. Children who sleep less are fatter! If you don’t sleep well you will be less active during the day and you can’t eat while you are sleeping.
