Extending sleep patterns result in reduction of sugar intake

We're still in the first half of January which means there's still lots and lots of people holding true to their New Year's resolutions to lose a few pounds in time for summer. This is a diet plan that sounds right up our alley, if you're into weight watching.

From the study, 42 healthy people of normal weight were brought; half given time to sleep well while others left to sleep for less than 7 hours.

Free sugars are added to foods by manufacturers or in cooking at home and are also present in honey, syrups and fruit juice.

This study also helps researchers understand the importance of poor sleep habits and schedules and its association with the rise in sugar and carbohydrate consumption.

For the study, the researchers selected 21 individuals and took them through a 45-minute sleep consultation program created to extend their sleep time by up to 1.5 hours in the very night.

"It can be hard to make healthy lifestyle choices when we're exhausted and so getting a good night's sleep might be more important than we think".

The team also studied 21 other adults who also were getting less than seven hours' sleep as a control group. They were also given a specific bedtime.

State Dept. Issues New Travel Advisory Threat Levels
The state with second-highest homicide rate - 61.6 per 100,000 - was Baja California Sur, home to the twin resorts of Los Cabos . Ranking Pakistan on Level 3, the State Department asked Americans to reconsider travel to this country due to terrorism.


All of the participants were asked to record their sleep and dietary patterns for seven days.

Of those receiving sleep advice, 86 percent increased time spent in bed, and half increased their sleep duration (ranging from 52 minutes to almost 90 minutes).

There was some evidence that sleep quality deteriorated in the sleep extension group, which the researchers attribute to a change of routine.

However, it is thought that the extended sleep experienced by the group who received sleep advice may not have been of the best quality.

But one of the common side effects of consistently not getting enough sleep is putting on weight. She added that getting good sleep is of public health importance as poor sleep is linked to several health concerns. "We have shown that sleep habits can be changed with relative ease in healthy adults using a personalised approach".

'We hope to investigate this finding further with longer-term studies examining nutrient intake and continued adherence to sleep extension behaviours in more detail, especially in populations at risk of obesity or cardiovascular disease'. Most of us know that we feel very bad if we don't get enough, yet hardly any of us manage the recommended 7-ish hours that we need.
