it is a hard work to lose weight. some succed by eating little, some did it by sweating a lot,... after all, this is tough to lose weight. while, it is reported by some scientific papers that you can lose your weight by sleeping more. during your sleep, your body burned the fat to gain energy. it seems more easily to lose weight through sleeping. however, people aroud me tended to sleep less time nowdays so to spend more time on work. so what about you guys? would you ever tried this sleeping methods to lose weight? how do you feel about it? i couldn't help to hear your experience about it!

I think the only reason that would be true is "When you sleep a lot you have less time to eat", makes sense to me.

yes, i agreed with your words that " when you sleep a lot you have less time to eat". for me, if i sleep a lot of time a day, i would like to drink more instead of eating.

A lack of sleep can hamper weight loss - you're tired and don't eat the things you should, but sleeping more than is required will not aide weight loss.

i dont think sleeping helps me to lose weight cause the more i sleep the more i tend to gain weight..and in sleeping we dont use much energy compare when we are awake so how can sleeping help us burns those fats?..

some research papers told us that we use more energy during sleeping. while, there always are many different researches with two totally different ideas on one subject. so which one is right?

I think this really depends on the person. I know sometimes when you dream you can get more of a work out then really working out. I've had some dreams where I wake up so tired because I was running in my dream. My legs even hurt, so I do believe that sleep is a way that people do loose calories, but not as a weight loss program. If a person wants to loose weight there has to be more involved then just sleeping. A person serious about it needs to do a more rounded program. I do believe sleeping does burn calories though. Why else would we wake up so hungery? Wasn't there a study done too that children need so much sleep a night because that is when their bodies grow?
