A PERSON’S sleeping habits could explain their eating habits as scientists believe the two are linked.
Researchers said the less you sleep the more you are likely to eat, which can lead to problems like obesity, type two diabetes and heart disease in the long run.
The researchers, from the University of Nebraska, said that the lack of sleep and tiredness affects the hormones controlling appetite so people feel hungrier. The study’s authors, Alyssa Lundahl and Timothy D Nelson, said: “It is well recognised that food intake is implicated in many chronic health issues including obesity, diabetes and heart disease, and diet is often a target of treatment to prevent the onset of these conditions.
“Understanding the mechanisms linking disrupted sleep patterns to increased food intake is important for informing both prevention and treatment interventions for chronic health conditions.”
