Go to one of the big Sacramento mattress sales if you want to lose weight because new research published in the journal Obesity reveals that sleep deprivation alters an individual’s shopping habits. Honor Whiteman, writer for MedicalNewsToday.com, reports about the research conclusions:
Findings showed that when the men were sleep deprived, they purchased 9% more calories and 18% more food, compared with their purchases after a good night’s sleep.
The men’s blood levels were also measured, both after one good night’s sleep and one night of sleep deprivation. The results revealed that after sleep deprivation, concentrations of the hormone, ghrelin – a hormone that increases hunger – were significantly higher. The researchers add, however, that this did not correlate with food purchasing behavior.
