Adequate Sleep Can Help Reduce Sugar Intake

Whereas, the second control group of 21 participants received no intervention in their sleeping patterns.

As principal investigator Wendy Hall, of Kings College's Department of Nutritional Sciences put it, "a simple change in lifestyle may really help people to consumer healthier diets".

There was some evidence that sleep quality deteriorated in the sleep extension group, which the researchers attribute to a change of routine.

Keep drinking water. Dehydration is the primary cause of "shallow" sleep, so while you don't want to wake up needing the loo, take on enough fluids to stop yourself waking up thirsty. On top of that, they had less of a craving for carbohydrates than those who maintained their existing sleep schedules.

"It's not a conscious decision but on a physiological level, if you're constantly sleep deprived you're much more susceptible to biscuits lying around in your office or your cupboard", she added.

We're still in the first half of January which means there's still lots and lots of people holding true to their New Year's resolutions to lose a few pounds in time for summer.

There is growing evidence of a link between sleep quality, obesity and metabolic diseases such as diabetes.

He continued that they hope to further examine nutrient intake and sleep patterns, especially in longer-term studies and populations that are at a higher risk of obesity or cardiovascular problems.

The randomised controlled trial, which can be published inside the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, seemed over the feasibility of rising sleeping at adults who on average slept less than the recommended minimum for older people of hours. Around 86 percent of the participants who had 0received sleep consultation managed to increase their total time spent in bed, and 50 percent of the participants extended their sleep duration by 52 to 90 minutes every night. A study into extending sleep unexpectedly found that the recommended eight hours a night could also improve your diet, by significantly reducing sugar intake. Their added sugar intake reduced by 10 grams the next day when the team compared the amount with the amount of sugar they consumed at the beginning of the test. The study shows that more than one-third of USA adults get 6 hours or less of sleep each night which is lower than the standard sleeping time.

The group increased their time in bed by 1.5 hours - and were told to avoid caffiene before bed, establish a relaxing routine and to try not to go to bed to full or hungry.
