Sleep can weight
One person at work who had read the post asked me if I take any medications mentioning that there can be weight gain with some.
I said, "I'm not on any medication, however I take a shot of ZzzQuil every night."
And then I started thinking...is there fat in ZzzQuil?
So I looked it up!
Holy Sleepless Nights!! Are you ready for this?!
There are 81 calories PER DOSE of ZzzQuil! (And that's a regular dose--I usually take "a little extra"!)
There are "up to" 6 carbs in one dose of ZzzQuil!! Hello!!!
And...there are 10 grams of SUGAR in a dose of ZzzQuil!
Seriously...now multiply that by SEVEN days a week times four weeks a month times the last six months!
Yeah...that could truly make a difference!
Of course, I'm not blaming my weight gain SOLELY on ZzzQuil...
But you can better believe I have sipped my last Zzzip of the stuff!
I expect to be thinner by morning.
And probably a little tired.
