Sleep study: A sleep study is the test used to diagnose sleep apnea. The test is done in 2 parts. The first part consists of monitoring you while you sleep. The second part involves putting you on a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine to see if it improves your sleep and breathing. If it works, the settings are then "titrated" to see what levels work best for you.

It depends: Diet pills work better when combined with lifestyle modification including proper nutrition and exercise. With orlistat (alli, xenical) you can expect 4 pounds or more per month. The side effects of orlistat including oily stains, fatty stools and fecal incontinence make it less desirable as a diet pill.

It depends: Focusing on calories is not the only requirement for weight loss. Foods have other characteristics that contribute to weight gain. Processed foods cause more weight gain than non-processed foods even when calories are equivalent because they are stored as glycogen which contains more water. This may explain the extra weight gain after a "rich" meal.
