U.S. – Here’s another reason to get a good night’s sleep: It could impact your appetite.
In a study, researchers used two groups to measure the impact of sleep. Members of one group slept for ten hours per day, while members of the second slept four hours at night.
The people who slept less ate an average of 500 calories more per day – and gained about two pounds more – than the group that slept well.
