Sleeping is letting you away from a number of diseases

There were no significant changes in diet in the control group.

Principal investigator, Dr Wendy Hall, of the Department of Nutritional Sciences said: "The fact that extending sleep led to a reduction in intake of free sugars, by which we mean the sugars that are added to foods by manufacturers or in cooking at home as well as sugars in honey, syrups and fruit juice, suggests that a simple change in lifestyle may really help people to consume healthier diets".

Sleep can be actually a modifiable risk factor for assorted conditions including obesity and cardio-metabolic disorder with several amounts indicating more than just a third of older people within the united kingdom are still not obtaining enough rest. Half of these were given help to sleep longer, receiving four personalised tips such as avoiding caffeine, establishing a relaxing routine or not going to bed too full or hungry.

The results showed that 86 percent of the group who received sleep advice managed to increase their time in bed by an average of 55. The study shows that more than one-third of US adults get 6 hours or less of sleep each night which is lower than the standard sleeping time. It is believed sleep deprivation makes brain cells react more strongly to unhealthy food, driving us to indulge in comfort eating. Three of the participants achieved a weekly average of more than 7 hours sleep a night. Their added sugar intake reduced by 10 grams the next day when the team compared the amount with the amount of sugar they consumed at the beginning of the test.

Half of the group underwent a "sleep hygiene" programme that involved a 45-minute appointment with a consultant with the aim of extending their sleep by between 1 and 1.5 hours a night.
