Ever sneak a late-night snack after a big dinner, then go to sleep? That’s the sumo wrestler diet.

Your body can’t burn those extra calories, so it stores them as fat. This can lead to weight gain and prediabetes.

In functional medicine, we look at the root causes of health problems — like how the powerful hormones above trigger night-time food cravings.
