Sleep Well, Live Healthier, Manage Your Weight

If you don't sleep well, your day will not go as well as it could. Your workouts are less effective when your energy is low. Too many sleepless nights can contribute to weight gain. If you continue to pile up sleep debt, it will eventually cause your health to suffer.


Psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Tracey Marks, has written a great book entitled, "Master Your Sleep: Proven Methods Simplified." Dr. Marks specializes in the interplay between your mind and body and how it shapes your quality of life. She has treated many patients suffering from burnout, depression and stress. Many times, sleep problems are at the root of their woes.

As a personal trainer, I see more and more clients who have sleep problems. This affects their metabolisms and hinders their efforts to reach fat loss and weight loss goals. I am using this book to help me first and my clients. I don't know anybody who hasn't had sleep problems at some point.

"Master Your Sleep" is well worth reading and it will help you regardless of your circumstances.

My favorite chapters are "Why Can't I Sleep" and "Behavioral Therapy--Things You Can Do." The book is helping me already. In particular, my busy lifestyle can sometimes affect the quality of my sleep. You'd be surprised at how many disorders there are that can hinder your sleep patterns.

Here's your chance to win a free copy of the book! It is paperback, only 125 pages and includes a sleep diary and problem solving worksheet. I have 3 copies to give away over the next week.

Just register at My Fitness Hut Blog.


If you don't win, be sure and buy your copy here. Peaceful sleeping to you!

  1. Hi Mark:

    Thanks so much for the review. You're so right about the weight gain and fat loss issue. In fact, I just recently came across a study discussing how the participants who were sleep deprived, didn't lose as much fat as those who were not.

    I don't think that's a connection people intuitively make with sleep and weight/fat.

    Making sleep a priority and getting the right amount of it is one more thing you and your clients can do to stay ahead of the fitness curve.

  2. Thanks for stopping by Tracey....when you don't sleep well, its easy to eat when you should be sleeping!

    I will use your book for myself, as a reference in my writing and with my clients.

    I also like your blog. Keep up the great work!

  4. Yes Sleep is very important when you're trying to lose weight. If you don't get much sleep that can have an effect on your weight. Moreover, if you are sleep deprived this could have a factor in your weight gaining issues.
