Sugar craving increases by short sleep

A recent study has discovered that sugar cravings increases by lack of sleep and following and maintaining a good diet to maintain healthy weight would necessitate a good night’s rest. The researchers of King’s College, London, conducted a study on 42 healthy adults. They were divided into two groups and one of the groups was trained to follow good sleeping practices and the other group was not advised to follow any rule. A motion sensor was used by these persons during the week to record the data of test.

After one week, the researchers found that heavy sleepers tend to consume less sugar than short sleepers. The aim of this study is to strengthen the findings that improving sleep improves diet and health of a person.
