The good news is: People who sleep more are thin! Gear up for the new weight-loss perscription: Sleeping pills! If you’re unconcious 3/4 of the day, you won’t have time to eat! At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised by anything the dieting industry was trying to sell me.
But you know what? They might be sleeping a lot because they’re functioning on so much exercise and so little food that their body is physically incapable of doing much more than sleeping.
As someone from a family of binge and purge dieters, I can tell you that a big part of the “dieting strategies” used by the women in my family were this:
Eat once a day, go to bed by seven.
You’ll “lose weight” in no time.
But if somebody jumps you on the train, you’re pretty much fucked. You’ll be so tired, dizzy, and washed out that you’ll hit the ground in about 2 seconds. My sister once passed out at a friend’s house merely walking across the kitchen.
Which sort of person would you like to be?
