If I lose weight will I stop snoring?

Q: If I lose weight will I stop snoring?

Dear Sir, not everybody who snores is overweight, however being overweight is one of the possible causes of snoring, particularly if you have a large amount of fat around your neck. People with a neck circumference (the distance around the neck) of more than 43cm (16 and 1/2 inches) usually snore. An important factor for improving or curing snoring is a person’s willingness to make important lifestyle changes, such as losing weight (if they are overweight).

Your lifestyle has many cobntributing factors to why one may snore, so if you are not overweight, there could be other reasons why you snore.
