Can you lose weight simply by sleeping more? Is 8 hours the “magic” number when it comes to sleep each night? Does the time you go to bed make a difference? Is there any truth to the idea that you sleep in 90 minute cycles? If so, should you plan your wake-up time accordingly? Are the apps for your smartphone that measure sleep quality good and/or worth it?

These are just a few of the many topics we discussed with the Sleep Doctor, Dr. Michael Breus. Dr. Breus is a recognized sleep expert who has been writing, speaking and educating the public about sleep for years. His most recent He’s written two books on the subject:
