How long you sleep could play a big role in how much weight you lose when dieting.

FOX's Colleen Cappon has more in today's edition of "Housecall For Health":

Scientists say if you're trying to lose weight, getting enough sleep is just as crucial as diet and exercise. In one study from the Canadian Medical Association, all participants consumed the same amount of calories, but those who slept just over five hours a night lost 55% less body fat than those who slept over eight hours. Researchers say a lack of sleep is becoming one of the biggest factors in the obesity epidemic.
