CT posted somewhere some time ago that above a certain weight he gets sleep apnoe.
That struck me as odd because I thought that only people with higher BF got sleep apnoe.
Since I had the opportunity to pick the mind of an expert here is how that could happen:
Your body needs oxygen. This is why you breathe.
BB need lots of oxygen. We all know about BB and their nemesis, i.e. stairs.
Now when you need more oxygen you breathe deeper. That is no problem as long as you are in an upright position and have some muscle tone.
However you muscles relax when you sleep in order to prevent you from acting out your dreams. The deeper the sleep, the more relaxed your muscles are.
Your trachea, i.e windpipe is part muscle and relaxes too. When you need lots of oxygen and breathe deeper the airflow gets faster which in turn creates a negative pressure that can close the trachea entirely.
Nobody dies from this, at least not right away, because there is a reflex that makes you breathe again, but it leads to distorted sleep patterns, high blood pressure and massive amounts of stress hormones to be dumped in to your body,
So in a nut shell:
Bigger body needs more oxygen, more oxygen means deeper breathing, deeper breathing makes trachea collapse in your sleep = sleep apnoe.
Now most people might not run into this problem due to size alone but if you already have a deviated septum or your jaw falls back when you sleep or anything really that restricts airflow, added muscle mass at least might push you over the edge.
