Sleepy eating

first_imgBy Jamie HamblinUniversity of GeorgiaWhile it’s OK to use the weekends to catch up on some tasks, sleep shouldn’t be one of them.People often make the mistake of using the weekends to catch up on sleep, said Sara Hendrix, a graduate student in the University of Georgia College of Family and Consumer Sciences.Instead, they should set aside a seven- to eight-hour sleep period beginning and ending at the same time every night, including weekends.”The quality of sleep matters just as much as the quantity of sleep,” said Gail Hanula, a University of Georgia Cooperative Extension nutrition specialist.According to a University of Chicago study, not getting enough sleep disrupts the balance between two hormones: leptin and ghrelin. This disruption can lead to overeating and, in turn, weight gain.”Adequate sleep, often sacrificed or neglected in the name of ‘busyness,’ may be another factor affecting weight control,” Hanula said.”Leptin is an appetite suppressor,” Hendrix said. “Studies show that people who don’t get adequate sleep produce lower levels of leptin. Therefore, their appetites may increase.”On the other hand, ghrelin, the opposing hormone, stimulates appetite.”When sleep decreases, ghrelin increases, which may also cause an increase in appetite,” Hendrix said. “Specifically, changes in these hormone levels can possibly intensify cravings for sweets, salty snacks and starchy foods.”Getting enough sleep enables your body to produce a balance of these hormones, which may make it easier to resist eating too many unhealthy foods. So if you’re trying to lose or maintain weight, focus on developing healthy sleep patterns as well as healthy eating and exercise habits.To get a quality night’s rest, Hanula and Hendrix suggest these guidelines:* Avoid caffeine late in the day. Caffeine from coffee, chocolate and sodas can take up to eight hours to wear off.* Avoid alcohol in excess. Although alcohol may make you tired, it keeps you in the lighter stages of sleep.* Avoid large meals two hours before bedtime.* Don’t nap too late in the day or for more than an hour.* Exercise. The more energy you expend during the day, the more worn out you will be by the time you lie down at night.

Sterling excited by City challenge

first_img The 20-year-old England international became British football’s most expensive player on Tuesday when he signed a five-year contract at the Etihad Stadium to complete a move from Liverpool which will be worth up to £49million. “It’s a good feeling and this is really happy time for me and my family,” Sterling told the club’s official website, Press Association “Finally, I’d also like to thank all the people around me – my mum and sisters, my management team and (agent) Aidy Ward for helping me focus and get where I am today. I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone.” Sterling passed a medical and completed the remaining formalities of the deal on Tuesday and he will fly out to meet up with his new team-mates in Australia within the next 24 hours. He is City’s record signing, surpassing the sums previously paid for Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero, after drawn out talks with Liverpool. City had two previous bids rejected before finally reaching a deal. Manager Manuel Pellegrini was delighted to finally get his hands on the player after that prolonged pursuit. He said: “Raheem Sterling is one of the best attacking players in world football and I am very much looking forward to him joining our squad out in Australia later this week. “He is a young player with outstanding ability and I am sure the Manchester City fans will be very excited about seeing him in action for the team.” Sterling began his career at QPR and joined the Reds for an initial fee of £600,000 as a 15-year-old in 2010. He was handed a senior debut as a 17-year-old and was twice named the club’s young Player of the year. Raheem Sterling believes the most exciting aspect of his record-breaking transfer to Manchester City is being able to play alongside so many world-class players. “I’m just glad it’s all over and done with and I can’t wait to get on the training field. “The thing that excites me the most is the world class squad we have and knowing we have a team that is capable of winning things year in, year out. “The more quality players that are around you, the more quality it brings out in you so I can’t wait to get started and play alongside them.” Sterling, who will wear the number seven shirt, was also grateful to his previous managers despite his protracted exit from Anfield. “It has been a long journey from QPR and I’d like to thank a few people who have helped me along the way,” he said. “I’d like to thank Rafa Benitez for taking me to Liverpool as a 15 year-old – that was a massive step for me and a new challenge. “Also to Kenny Dalglish for showing such faith in me and putting me in at such a young age. “I want to thank Brendan Rodgers for giving me a chance and an opportunity in the first team, giving me my full debut – against City funnily enough – and giving me a real chance to cement a place in the first team and show the world my talents. last_img read more
