achieve their goals. But you’re different. The moment
you decided to buy this book, you started an important
process that can literally change your life.

When you saw the title did you ask yourself…“What’s the
Now, if you’re worried that ramping up your daily calorie-
burn is going to take a lot of time and effort, you can
breath a sigh of relief. Because the beauty…the ‘miracle’
actually of the Eat More,Weigh Less Diet is that it is
as easy as anything could be! I'm going to teach you
how to lose weight while you're asleep!
NATURAL FAT BURNING FACTOR
THE QUALITY OF YOUR SLEEP
Now, before you turn down the covers, fluff up your
pillows, and prepare to snore your way to a healthy
weight, there’s something you need to know about sleep
and weight. Getting the right amount and the right kind
of sleep is just as important as getting the right kind and
the right amount of food.
Too much sleep will
sabotage your weight-loss
How much is too much?
The answer may surprise
From childhood, most of us are taught that 8 hours
constitutes a ‘good night’s sleep.’ Pregnancy and illness
increase the need for sleep, as well. In
adulthood, however, 8 hours is generally too much sleep.
As for middle-agers, most feel and function best sleeping
somewhere between 5 and 7 hours each night.
If you’re someone who’s tired all the time, it may be hard
for you to imagine that you could need less sleep than
you’re getting. However the problem may be with the
quality of your sleep, not the quantity.
Why is the amount of sleep you get so important? There
are several reasons.
Sleeping too much may be a symptom of depression, but
too much sleep can also contribute to depression. The
impact of depression on the human body is well
documented. It lowers energy levels and reduces
motivation, and that makes it hard to establish and
maintain good diet and exercise habits.
Because sleep can cause depression, it is referred to as
“depressogenic.” Wakefulness, on the other hand, is
“anti-depressogenic” and there is evidence that the
underlying chemical basis for this phenomenon may be
serotonin.You don’t have to be clinically depressed to
benefit from a decrease in sleeping hours. Studies have
reported an elevation of mood in ‘normal’ subjects who
sleep less, too.What does this mean to you? A great
deal! If you can consciously manipulate your sleeping
behavior, you’ll be able to elevate your mood and, in
turn, lower your weight! Using sleep to fight off
depression and shore up your emotional coping skills
may help take weight off and keep weight off. Among
other things, you may be less likely to seek comfort from
food because you're stressed or depressed.
Depression Weight Gain
The 69 women involved in the study, didn’t just consume
more calories…they got those calories from high-
fat, high-calorie food. In other words, due to stress and
depression, the woman who had been engaging in
healthy eating patterns regressed and began eating
more high-fat, high-calorie foods as a way of coping with
their feelings. Once answer is to incorporate mood-
management techniques into your weight loss program
to help prevent the weight regain that can occur as a
result of unhealthy coping behaviors such as over-
JUST ENOUGH SLEEP
A preventative as well as a solution for depression is
within everyone’s reach and that’s the right amount of
sleep. Just one night of sleeping less than you’re used
to, a strategy called "wake therapy," has been shown to
induces rapid and dramatic improvement of mood in
about 60% of all depressed patients.
Wake therapy was discovered almost 35 years ago.
Deeply depressed, psychotic, even suicidal patients
returned to their “normal” selves within a few hours of
forced wakefulness. The benefits from this natural, self-
administered ‘treatment’ are not related to
age, gender, or even severity of depression. Even
patients who believe that lack of sleep is central to the
cause of their depression have benefitted dramatically
People are more likely to respond to sleep deprivation
when they have a history of feeling disheartened in the
morning and then gradually become less depressed as
the day wears on and the “depressant effects” of the
previous night's sleep wear off.
The key to wake therapy is setting your alarm clock to
wake up early. The effect on mood is more profound
that going to sleep early.
