Setting our clocks back an hour when daylight saving time ends in November seems like a bummer, especially since that means the sun will set even earlier in the evening and we have nothing but shorter days to look forward to. The only plus seems to be that extra hour of sleep we get overnight—except that’s not exactly the case. Turns out, DST wreaks havoc on not only your sleep schedule, but also your hunger hormones.

How Do Professional Eaters Chow Down So Much Food?

  How Do Professional Eaters Chow Down So Much Food? For one thing, lots of practice.According to a new video by Seeker, some of it boils down to science: For one thing, competitive eaters "train" by eating huge amounts, which stretches out their stomachs and allows them to accommodate even bigger meals. They may have a less-sensitive enteric nervous system, which governs the function of the gastrointestinal tract. Special digestive bacteria, which share a two-way communication channel with the brain to suppress gut function, may also play a role.

If you ’ re looking for someone to blame for daylight saving time , allow us to suggest the Germans. After all it was Germany which, in April, 1916, first started moving clocks forward by an hour, to conserve energy during World War I. The rest of Europe followed, as did the US, in 1918.

Our vacation week is followed by a week of sick time , and that benefits no one.So, why do we always get sick after travelling? If you continue having difficulty adjusting to daylight - saving time , call an accredited sleep center or a sleep specialist, Nicholson adds.

According to a review in the journal Sleep Medicine Reviews, folks actually catch less Zzz’s the week following autumn’s daylight saving time—not more, as many people assume—because the transition messes with your sleep cycle or circadian rhythm. And, as many of us already know, less sleep is usually synonymous with an angrier appetite.

“Lack of sleep can lead to increased levels of the hunger hormone ghrelin, and decreased levels of leptin, the satiety hormone,” Alissa Rumsey, registered dietitian and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, explained in our article 25 Reasons You’re Gaining Weight. “Research also shows that when we’re sleep-deprived, our brains respond more strongly to junk food and have less of an ability to practice portion control.” In other words, sleepiness will probably make the free donuts in the break room seem irresistible.

I Fasted 20 Hours a Day For 2 Weeks, and I Can't Believe This Happened

  I Fasted 20 Hours a Day For 2 Weeks, and I Can't Believe This Happened Recently, I'd been seeing a lot about the Warrior Diet. It's a stricter form of intermittent fasting, during which you have a much shorter eating window of just four hours and then a fasting window of 20 hours. It seems crazy, right? Yet so many people rave about it. You're meant to obtain more mental clarity, increased energy, better digestion, reduced sugar cravings, and, for those looking for it, faster and better weight-loss and muscle definition results.I never gave it serious thought, though. I mean, how can you only eat for four hours?! But one day, it happened accidentally.

It’s that time of year – Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday. (Don’t forget to set your clocks back.) But have you ever wondered why we set our clocks forward and backward?

When Daylight Saving Time starts, we lose an hour of sleep. So if you ' re out to meet somebody during that hour—which really lasts 2 hours—make sure to specify if the meeting is before the switch (1st hour) or after it (2nd hour).

And even more disheartening, an American Heart Association study discovered that people who slept about an hour and 20 minutes less consumed 549 more calories the next day than the control group. Skimp out on sleep for less than a week, and that can throw about a pound of fat onto your frame! Not to mention, lack of shut-eye hours also equals lack of productivity, so getting to your usual 6 p.m. spin class may seem more grueling than usual. Avoid staying up late, which is one of the 50 Little Things Making You Fatter and Fatter, and log the recommended 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night to avoid added pounds this fall.
