Falling asleep with the TV on…  could be making you fat.

A new study included women, between the ages of 35-74, who weren’t pregnant, doing shift work, nor sleeping during the day.  Out of the 44,000 women who were studied, for five years, 22-percent were more likely to put on weight, due to sleeping with the TV.

According to a North Carolina National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences study, the main reason for the weight gain is the blue light keeping you from getting a good night’s sleep; and, therefore, making you hungrier due to hormones, which are released when you’re tired.

Long story short:  turn off the blue light, sleep well, and you could lose weight.
