I have a sleeping disorder where I sleep very odd hours for 3-5 hours a night/morning, sometimes without dreaming, and then I stay up for ~30 hours for a week, then I sleep for 15 hours. I am considering getting on ambien or something that can regulate my sleep.
As it is, I can lay there in bed staring at the ceiling and I still can't sleep. I've heard from several health programs that sleep loss can make weight loss difficult. In fact, my weight loss and sleep loss are linked in occurance.
Does anyone have any journal articles, or other resources to back this up? I'm interested in hearing more about it.
