Better Sleep Restrains Carbs and Sugar Cravings

Better Sleep Restrains Carbs and Sugar Cravings

As the modifiable risk factor for health, sleep has a significant impact on different conditions such as cardio-metabolic disease and obesity along with a number pointing to over a third of adults in the United Kingdom are not having a better sleep time.

In the study, the researchers recruited 21 individuals to participate in a 45-minute sleep consultation created to extend their sleep time by up to 1.5 hours per night. These participants also had a lower daily carbohydrate intake than the group that did not extend their sleep patterns, the study found.

The sleep extension group involved 21 participants, who undertook a better sleep consultation of 45 minutes that aimed to increase their bed time for upto 1.5 hours a night. With that in mind, the researchers chose to examine whether a sleep consultation could help adults get more shut-eye and how doing so might affect their daily nutrient intake. Later, the sleep extension group didn't receive interventions in the sleep patterns.

Of those who received advice, 86 per cent spent more time in bed and around half increased their sleep duration.

Three participants achieved a weekly average within the recommended seven to nine hours.

"Our results also suggest that increasing time in bed for an hour or so longer may lead to healthier food choices", said Haya Al Khatib from King's College London.
