Sleep, Greasiness, and Sadness
We know from previous research that sleeping behavior – whether as a night owl or early riser – can affect your eating habits and metabolism. In short, people who stay up late tend to be fatter, even if they consume the same number of calories as the "early in bed, early ascent" types.
Yes, the daily calorie intake is most important in the long run. But as the scientists say, the timing of taking energy (calories) can have a big impact on your metabolism. Basically, eating late in the night seems to be more harmful than early morning eating or "frontloading" of calories.
We also know from previous studies that there is an association between depression and binge eating. The first, the depressed egg or the gluttonous chicken, is controversial.
Thanks to a new study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research, we know that there may be a connection between your chronotype and time of the day you sleep ̵
Researchers examined more than 32,000 female nurses who did not suffer from depression and followed them for four years. First, they found out their chronotypes and classified them as early risers, midnight or middle ages.
After four years, those who went to bed early and got up early (morning people) were 12-27% less likely to be diagnosed as depressed by a doctor, self-reported depressive symptoms, or depression medication.
The exact reasons for this are not clear, and this does not mean that all night owls will become depressed, but it seems so increase the odds.
What this means to you
I have been eyeing sleep research for over 20 years, and there seems to be no benefit in sleeping patterns. From mood disorders to body fat, it seems like you go to bed early and get up early to get well … maybe even rich and wise.
Researchers find that it's usually unmarried people staying up late, and that makes sense socially. But it's no benefit to your body or mental health.
If you have the choice, try becoming a morning person. It's just stupid – you have to put your ass to bed earlier. If you need help calming, calming your mind and staying asleep, check out the Z-12 ™. Take 2-4 capsules an hour before you want to hit the sack.
After a few nights, you'll be surprised that you're an early riser after all. (From evolutionary point of view, we are all.) Our body systems were naturally synchronized with sunrise and sunset, at least before the electricity goes up.))
Also remember that depression has been linked to magnesium deficiency and magnesium deficiency even take seemingly unrelated over-the-counter and prescription medications. (See commonly used medications that secretly cause depression.)
Given the potential side effects of mood meds on a whim, going to bed, taking additional magnesium, and avoiding certain medications can relieve the symptoms of depression for many people with borderline complaints ,  Connected:
