More Sleep May Help Reduce Intake of Sugary Foods


Sleeping for longer each night is a very simple lifestyle intervention which could decrease intake of sugary foods and lead to some generally wholesome diet, as reported by some King's College London analyze.

The remaining volunteers did not receive a consultation and were told to go about their normal behaviors and keep their regular schedules.

Scientists based at King's College London in the United Kingdom have recently conducted a pilot study investigating sleep and diet. But missing out on the recommended minimum of 7 hours of nightly shut-eye is also linked to various health conditions, such as obesity and cardiometabolic diseases, which include diabetes, heart disease and stroke, according to the study, published today (Jan. 9) in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

From this study, it is clear that having extra hours of sleep can really do the magic, more especially for those that really want to watch their weight and eating healthy food void of sugar.

The researchers also tested whether an increase in sleep might affect nutrient intake.




When conducting the research, group of 21 volunteers who slept less than seven hours a night suggested changing their habits so that they could sleep for longer. On average, the study participants were able to get 90 more minutes of sleep during the seven day trial period. During this session, the sleep extension group were given at least four helpful hints to lengthen their sleep time, including information about reducing caffeine intake - having a coffee just before bedtime makes it harder to drop off (who knew?) - and setting up relaxing routines, such as a warm bath and some Kenny G. The second group received no such guidance, and both groups were asked to record their sleep and diet habits for a full week.

Losing weight and sleeping in?

Notably, the long sleepers also reduced their sugar intake-think: the simple sugars found in fruit juice, for example-by 10 grams, along with their carbohydrate intake.

As many as 86 percent of those who received sleep advice increased time spent in bed and a half increased their sleep duration (ranging from 52 minutes to almost 90 minutes). We have shown that sleeping customs can also be changed using relative simplicity in healthy older people utilizing a lively approach. There have been not any considerable differences displayed from the management group. "This further strengthens the link between short sleep and poorer quality diets that has already been observed by previous studies", Haya Al Khatib from the Department of Nutritional Sciences has added.
