The Number One Reason You Are Eating 300 or More Extra Calories A Day
Have you noticed there are days you eat loads of food or simply add an extra snack or whole meal? That could be because your body is trying to tell you something. There are days in your life when you truly consume at least 300 more calories a day than you normally would. So why are you eating so much?
Simply put: you are not getting enough sleep. A recent study published by the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, “In recent years, adequate sleep has emerged as a third pillar, along with exercise and healthy eating, as a way to help control weight.” This is evident in studies conducted by worldwide obesity clinics and Dr. Caroline Apovian, author of The Overnight Diet, as well. “Previous studies have linked a lack of sleep with obesity and even type 2 diabetes; but this is one of the first times researchers have calculated the caloric effect of insufficient Z’s.”
“Partial sleep deprivation ‘means that people were sleep deprived for part of the night but not for a full night,’ author Gerda Pot, PhD, explains. “Partial sleep deprivation could affect sleep quantity and/or quality.” Which is why the researchers at EJCN found, on average, patients who did not sleep a full night and got interrupted sleep - they consumed an average of 385 extra calories per day. That’s like eating a whole extra meal. Even a Subway sandwich without cheese has less calories than that, and it adds up over time.
