In the News: Get more sleep to drop pounds...


 
Staying up late at night only affects how long you sleep in for, right? Think again, girlies, TIME magazine's Meredith Melnick says otherwise.

It may seem harmless to catch up on those Pretty Little Liars and Gossip Girl re-runs past your bedtime, but facts show that this may not be the case. Word is that slipping up when it comes to getting your zzz's could be encouraging childhood obesity. How? Those night owls spend at least 30 more minutes a day with sedentary behaviors than their early bird counterparts.

A recent study by the journal Sleep followed the days of 2,200 children aged 9-16 and recorded their weight, how they spent their time and the amount of sleep they got each night. Those of you that prefer the wee hours were three times more likely to be missing your daily activity. And we all know what those lazy days can bring about...

To keep your health in check, growing girls should be getting at least eight hours of sleep every night.  So, tonight, click off that trusty television and stock up on sleep. You'll get a burst of energy come morning.

Could this be a culprit to America's tricky weight problem or is it just total gossip?  Tell us what you think, babes.
