Sleep deprivation may lead to weight gain

Sleep deprivation not only makes the day drag, but also lowers your metabolic rate causing the body to use less energy, according to a recent study.

If you are putting on weight, try counting your hours of sleep as well as your calories. According to scientists, just one night of sleep deprivation can lead to weight gain.

The study conducted by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, also suggests that getting plenty sleep might even prevent weight gain.

Moreover, it was found out that people who consume less sleep are more affected by the weight-related diseases.

Experts said that factors such as lifestyle and diet might add to obesity risks and that it was not clear that sleep deprivation led to obesity.
