Studies have shown that short sleep duration is associated with an increased risk of developing
obesity and weight gain. Sleep deprivation increases levels of ghrelin and decreases levels of
leptin. Ghrelin is a hormone that makes us feel hungry while leptin makes us feel full. This may
lead us to feel hungrier and overeat. For this reason, it is so important to get from 7 to 8 hours of
sleep every night because this will not only help you to keep your willpower stronger and to get
enough sleep and comfort but also help prevent late-night cravings for last food.
