Have you ever wondered why you are hungrier than usual if you do not get good night's sleep? Researchers from University of Chicago say they have found one reason. Their study reveals that lack of sleep makes people hungrier following day. Sleeplessness releases chemicals in brain that enhance the pleasure derived from eating, which also makes us eat more. We want to eat food that is high in calories. The researchers found that sleep-deprived people craved crisps, sweets and biscuits far more than healthier foods. researchers also reported that people in study who did not get enough sleep ate up to twice as much fat content as when they had slept for eight hours.

study was conducted on 14 male and female volunteers in their twenties. They were observed by researchers in two different situations. In one, they spent 8.5 hours in bed each night and averaged 7.5 hours of sleep. In other, they spent just 4.5 hours in bed and averaged 4.2 hours of sleep. researchers noted that in first situation, subjects ate three meals a day, as normal. However, in second situation, where they had been deprived of sleep, volunteers were unable to resist what researchers called "highly palatable, rewarding snacks". This happened just 90 minutes after they had eaten meal that supplied them with 90 per cent of their required daily calories.
