Sleep Deprivation Linked To Obesity, Other Health Problems
A new study from King's College London has recently found a link between sleep deprivation and consuming an extra amount of 385 calories a day. The researchers of said study claim that this activity or this condition is likely seen to have adverse effects to the body's hormones. Furthermore, the study suggests that people who do not usually get as much sleep are perceived as having no ability to burn calories anymore.
According to the International Business Times, another research published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition has found that sleep deprivation creates a significant impact in increasing one's appetite. A bad night's sleep is likely seen to make people crave for more foods which are considered as having a high fat and high-protein content.
The team from the said study has revealed that people who had less than five and a half hours of sleep consume an average of 385 extra calories a day as compared to those who had more than seven hours of sleep. Researchers from King's College London allegedly suspect that sleep deprivation means the urge to eat more for people to feel full.
As Daily Mail reports it, the study finds that while a huge amount of time is spent on being awake, people hadn't done more physical activity than those who had a full night's sleep. Thus, no burning of calories has taken place.
A professor of circadian neuroscience at the University of Oxford, Russell Foster, has claimed that the human race of the present time is found to be a type of supremely arrogant species. In one of his statements, Foster explains how humans override the time, in which if found to be continuously happening, may possibly lead to serious health threats.
At the present time, according to the guidelines released by the National Sleep Foundation suggests seven to nine hours of sleep for adults is preferable, while less than six hours of sleep per night can actually compromise one's health and well-being.
