Impact of Sleep Restriction in Women

Impact of Sleep Restriction in Women

The overall goal of this project is to test the hypothesis that long-term, sustained sleep restriction (SR), in women, will lead to increased cardio-metabolic risk. This will be characterized by increases in visceral adiposity, unhealthy lifestyle behaviors (poor dietary quality and low physical activity) and cardio-metabolic risk factors (blood pressure, glucose intolerance) relative to habitual sleep (HS). The investigators expect these changes to be worse in pre- compared to post-menopausal women.
