Sometimes you just need chocolate or a “junk food” pick me up. If you are partially sleep deprived, a systematic review published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2016) confirmed, you will eat an average of 385 calories more than those who are well rested but you don’t necessarily exercise more.
Sleep is necessary for the production of a number of hormones that regulate appetite. Insufficient sleep can lead to eating more food and choosing unhealthy foods. Aim for 7-9 hours of quality sleep. When you are well rested, not only do you have more energy and are more present, it can also help you make healthier food choices.
