When people sleep more they also eat less sugar and carbs

There is a growing link between sleep quality obesity and metabolic diseases

Lie-ins make it harder to get to sleep the next night, setting you up for a troubled week.

A new study found that an extra 20 minutes of sleep could be the key to shedding excess pounds but when talking about the previous study, it may not seem like the obvious way to lose weight. However, most research until now has either been observational, leading to the possibility, for instance, that obesity causes poor sleep rather than the other way around, or has looked at the effects of sleep deprivation on appetite.

And they found that 86% of the group who slept longer managed to increase their sleep time by an average of 21 minutes - and after a month of better sleeping, cut their sugar intake by nearly 10g - a third of their daily allowance.

For the study, the researchers selected 21 individuals and took them through a 45-minute sleep consultation program created to extend their sleep time by up to 1.5 hours in the very night. Three participants achieved a weekly average within the recommended seven to nine hours. Half of these were given help to sleep longer, receiving four personalised tips such as avoiding caffeine, establishing a relaxing routine or not going to bed too full or hungry. Their added sugar intake reduced by 10 grams the next day when the team compared the amount with the amount of sugar they consumed at the beginning of the test.

Their sleep patterns and diets were monitored for a week after, and the results were impressive. There were no significant changes in diet in the control group.

The study involved a group of 42 participants who reported usually getting less than seven hours of sleep per night.

The group has provided a chart which contained some suggestions to get better sleep.

'Sleep duration and quality is an area of increasing public health concern and has been linked as a risk factor for various conditions'. We have shown that sleeping customs can also be changed using relative simplicity in healthy older people utilizing a lively approach.

"Our results also suggest that increasing time in bed for an hour or so longer may lead to healthier food choices".

This isn't the first study to link diet and sleep.

He continued that they hope to further examine nutrient intake and sleep patterns, especially in longer-term studies and populations that are at a higher risk of obesity or cardiovascular problems.

Those who stay in bed longer were found to consume 2½ fewer teaspoons of sugar per day - around 40 calories.
