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

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