Poor sleeping habits may lead to overeating
Researchers in Pennsylvania investigated diets and sleeping patterns. They found people in different sleep categories had distinct diet patterns. For instance, short sleepers, or those who got 5 to 6 hours a night, consumed the most calories and the least amount of Vitamin C.
Long sleepers who got nine or more hours a night consumed the least amount of calories.
Normal sleepers had the most variety in their diet, which researchers say is an indicator of good health.
