    done some reasearch on it and it seems it does if you are getting less than 7.5 hrs a night. it says your metabolism is slower when you are sleep-deprived.

    I've only ever done this diet sleep deprived lol I average anywhere from 3 to 7 hours sleep a night (thanks to a lovely 8 month old) I loose around 3lbs a week even when I'm not sticking to it 100%…would love to see what results I could get if I slept properly and stuck to the CD rules!!…mmm sleep haha I can wish!

    I've had hardly any sleep for the past few days due to work and I've been finding sticking to plan a bit of a struggle....so it definitely affects your mindset....all I could think of today was fooooooodddd :-0

    OMG!! I don't know how you manage! I have a 4 month old and she goes to bed about 7.30pm and wakes up at 8am - then back an hour later for another three hours! I wonder if too much sleep can affect your weightloss.........:D

    Ooh, I feel for you!!

    I honestly don't know how you function each day. I work full time (I have five kids, so I go to work for a rest!!) and will go back of mat leave in September when Orla is about 9 months and I'm hoping she'll be a great sleeper still then, or I'd never be able to keep up! All of my kids have slept well thankfully!! I'm very lucky!

    I think you are doing amazingly well - when I'm tired I just feel like stuffing my face and drinking lots of wine!
