Thanks for responding everyone!
I am disappointed, I thought this was far more common.

My totally unprofessional and uninformed opinion is that when a person is choking and gasping and suffocating all night long, this puts the body into crisis mode where it hangs on to every calorie just in case of emergency. Just like dieting slows the metabolism down, because the body goes into crisis mode and prepares for future deprivation by storing fat. The body's motto is Always be prepared.

Sagesteve, that is awesome. Did you change your diet or other habits?

I have heard a number of people say this. My doctor also told me this happens for many people.

Oh man, I hate that diet, I've been on it too. Clostridium!

This boggles my mind. My insurance also does not cover a dietitian. How does this make sense?
