Losing Weight While Sleeping

Fad diets are usually controversial, with different experts on opposite ends citing their opinions on various weight loss strategies being promoted to the public.

The newest diet plan is described in a book, The Overnight Diet: The Proven Plan for Fast, Permanent Weight Loss, written by Dr. Caroline Apovian, an expert in the medical field of managing obesity.  Her impressive credentials can encourage dieters to consider her strategy seriously, since she is no less than the director of the Center for Nutrition and Weight Management at Boston Medical Center, as well as their director of Clinical Research at the Obesity Research Center. Furthermore, Apovian is a nutrition consultant to NASA and an appointed member of the federal government’s panel on the evaluation and treatment of overweight adults.

The Overnight Diet is basically a high-protein diet that keeps the dieter’s body in fat-burning and weight-loss mode while they sleep. The regime consists of 6 days of a high protein diet and one day of liquid diet. However, unlike other high protein diets, dieters may eat as much fruits and vegetables they want. Apovian claims that people who follow this plan will lose as much as two pounds overnight after the One Day Power Up jumpstart program and up to nine pounds after the first week, if they follow the diet plan and get the prescribed amount of sleep.

However, other nutrition experts are not convinced. In an interview with the television program, Good Morning America, Keith Ayoob, the director of the nutrition clinic at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine’s Rose F. Kennedy Center in New York, argues that while it is possible to lose two pounds overnight, the weight loss would be from water loss and not from fat. He adds that one would have to burn about seven thousand calories while sleeping to lose two pounds of fat overnight.
