WEDNESDAY, MARCH 8, 2023 (HealthDay News) — A study presented at the American Heart Association’s 2023 Science Session on Epidemiology and Prevention/Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health found that people with good sleep health , you are more likely to stick to your diet and exercise goals. February 28th to March 3rd in Boston.
Christopher E. Kline, Ph.D., at the University of Pittsburgh, and colleagues evaluated sleep health (regularity, satisfaction, alertness, timing, efficiency, duration) and life in 125 overweight or obese adults. We examined the relationship with measures of style improvement. Participated in a 12-month behavioral weight loss intervention.
Researchers found that better sleep health was associated with higher attendance at group intervention sessions, higher adherence to caloric intake goals, and greater variation in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. Overall, during the first 6 months, participants participated in 79% of the group sessions, achieved their daily caloric intake goal on 36% of the days, and spent total hours in a day engaged in moderate-to-vigorous activity. Increased by 8.7 minutes.
“It is still unclear whether it is best to optimize sleep before attempting weight loss rather than during it,” Klein said in a statement. Should I tell my patients to focus on improving sleep and sleeping regularly before, or should I try to improve their sleep while modifying their diet and activity levels?”
