This thread is very useful and has answered most of the general questions but I think there is one common myth you left out and that is the myth that you can loose weight by not sleeping. I found that being an insomniac has made it harder for me to keep my weight and found that I gained 20 pounds in a short period of time just from extreme lack of sleep. People always assume insomniacs are suppose to look sickly thin but the truth is lack of sleep creates stress which in the end creates cortisol, a hormone which stimulates fat.
