Sleeping longer can lead to better eating, according to a new research conducted by nutritionists at King's College in London. The study found that increasing total sleep time each day can result in less sugar intake and generally lead to a healthier overall diet. The team found that increasing sleep hours to optimal levels (seven hours per night for adults) reduced sugar intake by 10 grams in most adults compared with baseline levels. Results also saw reduced carbohydrate intake for those whose sleep hours were increased.
