Study: Less sleep means more snacking

null A new study out of Chicago followed eleven people. For two weeks, the participants slept only five and a half hours a night at a sleep lab.

Several months later, they came back and spent two more weeks sleeping eight and a half hours a night.

During both stays, the participants had unlimited access to snacks.

Researchers say the people averaged 220 more calories on the days after they slept only five and a half hours.
