Lack of sleep related to weight gain

New research carried out at Case Western Reserve University in the United States has drawn a link between sleepless nights and weight gain in women.....

sleep weight gainThe study appeared to show that those women who slept for less than five hours a night were 32 per cent more likely than regular sleepers to substantially gain weight, and fifteen per cent more likely to become obese.

Head researcher Dr Sanjay Patel said that diet and exercise were studied alongside sleeping patterns but that the weight gain was attributable to the sleeping patterns of subjects. He said; ‘Prior studies have shown that after just a few days of sleep restriction, the hormones that control appetite cause people to become hungrier, so we thought that women who slept less might eat more. But in fact they ate less.’

The results, then, do not appear to contain much logic, so it is hard to actually derive any useful information from them, other than that a good night’s sleep may help not only your beauty, but your figure as well.
