Sleep Deprivation May Cause People to Eat More Calories
Your weight struggles may not just be about the food you eat. Your sleep, or lack of it, might be part of the problem. Recent meta-analysis from researchers at Kings College London, published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that sleep deprivation typically was associated with an increase in the number of calories consumed. Yet, energy expenditure remained about the same. In other words, calories in go up, but calories out do not. The result is weight gain. As you look to get back in shape this month, be sure you are getting the rest you need.
