Nutrition Myth Busters: Sleep Less, Eat More, Gain Weight?

Cassie Rowe, MS, RD, LD/N

I hear it over and over again. Weight loss gurus expounding the “fact” that if you get more sleep, you’ll eat less, and you’ll lose weight. Is it true? Let’s take a quick moment to explore this common interpretation.

The Paleo Postulate

Cassie Rowe, MS, RD, LD/N

A co-worker the other day asked me about the Paleo Diet and I had a moment of clarity: “Aha! That’s what April’s first blog will be about!” As I began writing, I wondered just how popular this diet is, so I typed “Paleo Diet” into my Google search bar. I’m wowed with over 10 million hits, but not really all that surprised. After all, we’re a nation of weight watchers—whether we’re conscious of that fact or not.

“Normal Weight”, Is it Healthier?

Nope! At least, that’s what new research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) says. When researchers compared 91 studies with results from 2.8 million people they found that the overall risk of death was LOWER for most adults who are overweight and some adults who are obese than for adults at a normal weight. Surprised? I wouldn’t blame you, given that the mainstream message for the last several years preaches that having a “normal” weight (Body Mass Index, or BMI, of 18.5-<25) will keep you healthy.
