Participants with restricted sleep ate more calories than those with unrestricted sleep. The extra calories, on average 550, were consumed between 10pm and 4 am, a time when the participants were kept awake. The overeating caused a weight gain of just over 2 pounds compared to just one tenth of a kilogram for those who had unrestricted sleep.
The results show the profound affects lack of sleep can have on the body and the influence it has on our meal decisions. One way to help with sleeping issues as well as with controlling eating habits is to use hypnotherapy. The National Council for Hypnotherapy is an online directory of hypnotists based in the UK. The organisation links hypnotists with clients looking for hypnotherapy sessions in their local area. Responding to the new research a spokesperson said:
“It is fascinating to see the effect that sleep can have on the body. Hypnotherapy can be used to treat a variety of problems including sleep disorders and weight problems, making it the perfect therapy to recommend in light of the study findings.”
The National Council for Hypnotherapy continues to follow health news.
