I agree with all the comments so far. The most shocking "recommendation" was to eat a high GI meal. (HUH?!?!?) Also, sleep supplements are WORTH a try IF you are having troubles sleeping and aren't ready to turn to your doctor for a prescription. Don't discredit them completely! However, just like anything, a person must use caution. Valerian Root works for me, but you can build up a tolerance, so don't take it all the time. I sincerely hope that people who read a lot of these articles take them with a grain of salt.....

Thank you for sharing. Being a first time mom I don't have time to workout nor do I get enough sleep. Despite my healthy eating I continue to gain weight. Now I know that sleep deprivation is the culprit.

Michelle, it is a shame that you should recommend an unhealthy trick on a site that purports to advise on healthy eating. A high GI diet is bad for almost everyone. The rapid rise in insulin is unhealthy in a number of ways that I won't bother to detail. One group of people that eats high-GI meals before bed is sumo wrestlers. Part of their daily weight gain regimen is to eat a large quantity of rice and then take a nap. So, yes, all those carbs might help you sleep, but is it worth it?

This "study" was done on 12 males, 18-35 years old that did NOT have sleep problems. Please do some real research before you write things that are very misleading.
