Get More Sleep
Sleep may be as important to weight loss as diet and exercise. A study in the May 2008 Sleep journal showed a link between lack of sleep and obesity. Children who were short on sleep were 88 percent more likely to be obese, while adults were 55 percent more likely.
Sleep may also be effective at fighting cancer such as meningiomas. Getting a good night’s sleep can regulate the balance of cortisol and melatonin, two hormones that have been shown to fight cancer.
