Disruptive Sleep May Cause Increased Food Intake

Less sleep, especially disruptive sleep, may be linked to excessive food intake.  And excessive food intake may cause obesity and other potential health problems, such as diabetes, heart disease and other long-term issues. A new study published in The Journal of Health Psychology concluded that sleep affects all the biological, emotional, cognitive and environment factors that influence food intake. Sleep can affect hormones,  mental status, metabolism, etc.When discussing dietary strategies,  problems with sleep are often not addressed, and it is important to consider the link between sleep and eating to modify dietary behavior.
