Your High-Fat Diet Could be Why You’re Tired During the Day

An article posted on the New York Times “Well” blog suggests that high-fat diets can be linked to daytime sleepiness. According to research published in the medical journal “Nutrients,” men who were in the highest one-quarter of fat intake in an 1,800 person survey were 78 percent more likely to feel sleepy in the middle of the day and almost three times as likely to have sleep apnea when compared to those who were in the lowest one-quarter of fat intake. The connection between fat intake and sleep apnea was also more apparent in people with a higher body mass index.
