It’s just one more negative side effect to add to the list of poor sleep! So if you often wonder？how to stop craving junk food， better sleep is a great place to start.
The findings， which were published in Feb. 29 in the journal？Sleep， showed that sleep-deprived subjects failed to resist junk food after eating a meal that covers 90% of the daily caloric needs.
The results came from two separate studies conducted at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center and Columbia University， and the University of California. The studies also used MRIs to measure brain function and pleasure centers after sleep deprivation.
“The pleasure-seeking parts of the brain were stimulated after an individual was sleep-deprived，” says lead researcher Marie-Pierre St-Onge， Ph.D.， a research associate at the university’s New York Obesity Research Center told？CNN. “People went for foods like pepperoni pizza， cheeseburgers and cake.”
Researchers suspect tired people are drawn to high-calorie foods because their bodies and brains are seeking an extra energy boost to help them get through the day.
“We hypothesize that the restricted-sleep brain reacts to food stimuli as though it [were] food deprived，” St-Onge says.
Basically， if you sleep， you can control yourself. If you don’t sleep， the junk food cravings become worse and you become a sugar-and-fat addict.
