Not getting enough sleep may lead to weight gain
Not getting enough sleep may lead to weight gain (June 28, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Philadelphia - Going to bed late and not getting enough sleep may lead to weight gain, according to a report published in Sleep. Researchers studied 225 healthy, non-obese individuals, whose ages ranged from 22-50 years. Participants were randomized to either go to sleep at 4 am and wake up at 8 am or to sleep from 10pm to 8am for 18 consecutive days in the laboratory. Results showed that individuals who had their sleep restricted ate significantly more calories--typically eaten during the period of the late night that they were awake.
