Dr. Michael Breus Featured In Real Simple Magazine

sm2014-07-11-recap-thumbIn a recent issue of Real Simple magazine, Dr. Michael Breus, our sleep specialist at Southwest Spine & Sports, gives his take on the importance of sleep as it relates to weight control: “In REM, your brain is active, chewing up glucose especially quickly.” He goes on to talk about how proper sleep can help you maintain a faster metabolism, saying “the more sleep-deprived you are, the harder you have to work to burn each calorie.”

Dr. Breus is the author of The Sleep Doctor’s Diet Plan: Lose Weight Through Better Sleep and is a friend and partner of the physicians at Southwest Spine & Sports. For more from Dr. Breus, check out his blog at http://www.theinsomniablog.com.
