If you need to lose weight, dieting and exercise is a good thing. However, be watchful of insomnia . Not being mindful of your dieting and exercise can cause a variety of sleep issues.
Most people increase their water intake dramatically while dieting. Water helps to flush toxins out of the body and it gives a full feeling that can reduce feelings of hunger. Just note that if drinking large amounts of water is part of your diet program, your sleep may be interrupted by trips to the bathroom at night.
Solution : Work around this issue by drinking the largest quantities of water in the morning and taper off as the day goes along. Avoid drinking water a few hours before bedtime.

At my last rheumatologist appointment, my rheum and I talked about the significant fatigue I had been experiencing. I would get up for a few hours in the morning and then immediately have to go back to bed for several hours, despite getting between seven and 12 hours of sleep per night.

Medical experts say that you should get between 7 and 8 hours of sleep, but recent statistics revealed that many people are getting less than 5 to 6 hours. If you are not getting enough sleep, it can have adverse affects on your overall health. For example, it may cause unwanted weight gain, or a constant feeling of sluggishness throughout the day. People use many excuses for not getting to bed at a decent time. “I have to clean the house, and nighttime is the only time I can get everything done;” or “I love watching late night television.” No matter what excuse you are using, your lack of a good night’s sleep can be a problem. Some people, however, bring their stress problems into the bedroom, and that can have disastrous results. Not only will stress affect your sex life, it will also affect your ability to get the rest you need. No matter what has caused stre...
