CONTENT AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES

We’re excited to welcome Dr Wendy Hall for a webinar examining the data for how sleep impacts on diet and cardiometabolic health.

The talk will cover:
  • The amount and quality of sleep associated with risk of obesity, diabetes and coronary heart disease
  • Insufficient sleep and its association with poorer dietary choices
  • Tackling inadequate sleep as a key lifestyle risk factor may improve health by facilitating adherence to dietary guidelines and supporting weight management
 

WATCH THE WEBINAR TO

GAIN CLEAR UNDERSTANDING OF:
  • The evidence from observational studies that sleep is associated with obesity, risk of cardiometabolic diseases and a less healthy diet
  • The emerging evidence that extending sleep duration may support successful weight loss and improve diet quality
BE AWARE OF:
  • Guidelines for sleep duration
  • Sleep hygiene recommendations
  • The lack of research on the efficacy and effectiveness of sleep duration extension as an adjunct to dietary advice in clinical populations and occupational health
BE ABLE TO:
  • Identify emerging insights from the literature on sleep and diet
  • Summarise the main mechanisms whereby sleep might influence eating habits, and where diet might influence sleep
  • Discuss the potential role of increasing sleep duration and consistency in weight management and prevention of cardiometabolic diseases
