As a nurse, I have spent a good deal of me working life working nights and long hours.
I have to agree with the sleep deprivation aspect of gaining weight. I just came off a year of
16 hour night shifts, and have a 30 pound weight gain to show for it. Stress, lack of sleep, all of it, can really trash a metabolism. Report
Being a nurse, diet pills scare me. They can do lots of damage and you may not even know the damage is taking place. I wish there was more control on these products. Report

We can comment articles now? Sweet!

I've made the mistake of eating too little. I did the Weigh Down Workshop when I was 14. I lost about 50lbs. But I killed my metabolism. I was barely eating. The rule is "Eat when you're hungry, stop when you're satisfied, not full." It works well for some people, but I had no idea what I was doing. I thought I was hungry when my stomach growled. But now that I know my body better, and know that that is waaay past the point of actual hunger for me. I bet there were days when I was eating 500 calories.

Well, you can guess from that it didn't work out, because now I'm using Spark, doing it the right way. Report

I had fallen prey to the idea that weight loss pills will keep me from being hungry. That was until I started eating 6 mini meals a day. Report
