It might be: Recent studies have suggested an association between sleep duration and weight gain. Sleeping less than five hours — or more than nine hours — a night appears to increase the likelihood of weight gain. In one study, recurrent sleep deprivation in men increased their preferences for high-calorie foods and their overall calorie intake. In another study, women who slept less than six hours a night or more than nine hours were more likely to gain 11 pounds (5 kilograms) compared with women who slept seven hours a night. Other studies have found similar patterns in children and adolescents. One explanation might be that sleep duration affects hormones regulating hunger — ghrelin and leptin — and stimulates the appetite.

The ketones take water with them as they leave your body in the urine. If you are thirsty or your tongue is dry or white, then you need to drink more water. Your own liver and kidneys normally do a great job of detoxing your body. Good luck on your diet! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is a weight loss goal of only 1/3 of a pound per week too insignificant? deficit of only 200 calories a day?
There is a weight loss diet marketed as eat-stop-eat. It involves fasting for 1or2 days/week. Does anyone have experience of the eat-stop-eat "diet.
