Right... so as you've read in the title: this is a little awkward. Since a couple of months I started snoring. Once every few days though (at least: as far as I know). I'm posting this here because I think its body-build related. This started the same time I put on weight (a lot, 171 -> 194 pounds). I just read this on a Dutch website concerning health things:

"When men get fatter they put on fat on their belly, shoulders and neck. This pattern is specific for males and mostly happens because of the male hormone androgen, which stimulates the apatite, weight-gain and salt levels. These are all factors that can cause snoring."

Maybe it's poorly translated, but I think you get the idea. I know my body-fat percentage went up a lot. From 4% to 10%. Does anyone have any experience with this? What can I do to prevent this? Do you think its just a matter of losing fat? Or just losing weight in general (which I worked so hard for, lol)?

I'm sorry if this bothers anyone.

Edit: I just read on a lot of other fora that bulking, steroids and even creatine (cause of the water) can cause snoring. Still hoping anyone here has any experience with it and can give me some tips. I'm thinking of buying some spray or strip to prevent it... but I don't really like the idea :)

Haha my girlfriend noticed the other day that I snore when I lie on my back (I normally lie belly down).

It's kinda hard to control if I roll over in my sleep or something though lol.

But do you think it occurred when you started gaining weight lifting weights?

If I sleep on my stomach my arms fall asleep, which is especially annoying when there is an alarm clock going off and I can't move. ;)

I snore as well but it seems to be entirely nasal congestion related. Decongestants help with the snoring but also make it hard to sleep.
