Although going to bed at a reasonable hour means you’ll miss out on late night talk shows and compelling infomercials, it’s best to get the recommended amount of shut eye each evening. According to the National Sleep Foundation, an adult should be getting seven to nine hours of quality sleep each night. The source explains that without this much sleep you may have difficulty paying attention, have an increased risk of heart problems and an increased risk of motor vehicle accidents, not to mention, you’ll probably be extremely cranky.
However, a new study has found that a lack of sleep may also increase the amount you eat throughout the day and therefore cause you to gain weight. Presented at an American Heart Association’s Epidemiology scientific conference, researchers discovered those study participants who slept less were more likely to become obese.
“Sleep deprivation is a growing problem, with 28 percent of adults now reporting that they get six or fewer hours of sleep per night,” explained one study author, Andrew D. Calvin, M.D., M.P.H., cardiology fellow and assistant professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic.
The control group in this study slept the recommended amount of time, while the test group slept only two-thirds of that span of time. Researchers discovered that those who sleep one hour and 20 minutes less than the control group ate a whopping 549 more calories on average per day.
Therefore, if you are trying to lose weight, but are not getting enough sleep, this may be why you are not seeing results. Likewise, your lack of sleep may be contributing to your weight gain.
