Study suggests lack of sleep can lead to larger food portions


People who don’t get enough sleep may want to be more careful about what they eat for breakfast, according to a new study.

The new study out of Sweden compared the eating patterns of participants after they were forced to stay awake all night with their eating patterns after sleeping for a full eight hours.

After the sleepless night the study found participants were more likely to choose larger food portions than when they were well rested.

This latest study is consistent with several previous studies that found some sort of link between sleep deprivation and obesity.
