Weight loss linked to improved sleep, mood

January 28, 2015

Losing 5% or more from initial body weight is associated with short-term improvements in sleep quality and duration, and short- and long-term improvements in mood, according to a recently published study.

“This 2-year randomized controlled trial found that three different behavioral weight loss interventions, delivered in primary care practice by practice staff, helped approximately one-fifth to one-third of participants in the three groups lose 5% or more of initial weight,” Nasreen Alfaris, MD, MPH, of the department of medicine, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, and colleagues wrote.
