Sleeping To Stay Slim: 8-Fold Increase In Weight Gain Caused By Sleep Deprivation

For people who are trying to lose weight, here is some good news. A recent study showed that having a good night’s sleep regularly can prevent weight gain in healthy adults and that late bedtimes and less sleep may do the opposite.

Scientists recruited 225 adults to participate in a two-week study at the Sleep and Chronobiology Laboratory at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. The researchers found that people who were forced to stay up late consumed 30 percent more calories and gained about eight times as much weight compared to individuals that were allowed 10-12 hours of sleep over this short two-week study period.
