By now most everyone knows the benefits sleep can provide. From heart health to more energy, sleep’s list of positives is quite expansive.
A new study has been conducted at King’s College London that shows getting the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep can also help dull your sweet tooth. People who sleep less than seven hours a night were coached on strategies to extend sleep time and were observed changing their diets to include less sugar.
They did so without being asked once they began sleeping at least an hour more each night. Those included in the study only decreased their sugars by 10 grams per day, but over time this change can be quite substantial and lead to additional positive diet changes.
