Sleep Deprivation And Metabolism

Sleep Deprivation and Metabolism:

http://www.medscape.org/viewarticle/502825

Has anyone else had trouble with weight or other metabolic processes? Despite dieting and exercising, I haven't had a substantial change in body mass. (My muscles haven't gotten bigger and my BMI hasn't changed, either.) I've been trying to improve my flexibility, stamina, strength, etc. It seems that only my flexibility has improved. The likely culprit is a lack of good sleep...

Anyone else?

Sleep disorders are widely known to affect weight. Apnea, narcolepsy, they are really strongly associated with heaviness. Part of it seems to be metabilosm and some is hunger- when I wasn't treated enough, I would get hungers like I can't even fully describe. I'd have just finished eating and still be ravenous. It actually would make me cry; my belly would hurt from the food but I couldn't stop feeling hungry.

That's changed now and I'm a normal weight, but I was running like crazy and not losing at all, until I started medication.

It's awful. But mine did change, once I got treatment for the narcolepsy.
