Shortchanging Sleep

It’s time to get to the bottom of the short sleeper myth. As far back as Albert Einstein, there have been a handful of successful people that attribute part of their success to their ability to consistently sleep less than 6 hours every night. The Center for Creative Leadership ran a study and saw that 42% of leaders get less than 6 hours of sleep a night. However, recent research shows that less than 5% of people are naturally short sleepers, people who have a genetic mutation that makes them less susceptible to the effects of sleep deprivation. So how are the 42% doing it and what happens when you are a short sleeper without the genetic mutation?

Adding Calories. Why Sometimes More Means Less

“Less calories in, more calories out” has been a mantra touted by the diet industry for decades. While there is truth in this, if you want to lose weight you do need to burn more than you eat, there is not a one size fits all for how many calories to cut and how. We all have different Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE), the number of calories someone burns as they go about their day. This differs based on how active you are in your everyday life and your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). BMR is what you burn when your body is at rest in order to keep you alive.
