Being overweight by only a few kilograms can considerably increase your chances of snoring.
The increased mass around your neck can lead to the narrowing of the upper airway, restricting your ability to breathe freely.
You may also find that you do not have the muscle tone needed to hold the upper airway open during the night to prevent the vibration of soft tissue in your throat.
What can you do?
- Eating a balanced diet and exercising more frequently can help you to reduce body fat and alleviate snoring caused by being overweight.
- If you have not exercised for a long time, have an existing medical condition or have specific dietary requirements, consult your doctor first.
