Lack of sleep increases the feeling of hunger

Lack of sleep can lead to a metabolic disorder, characterized by accelerating feeling of hunger, claims a study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Even a single without sleeping night has an effect of slowing down the metabolism by 20% compared to its normal operating mode, as in the case of a proper rest.

In addition, those who do not sleep enough experience the feeling of hunger more acutely than those who are resting and have a normal glycemic level.

At the same time, researchers say that sleep deprivation leads to increased secretion of cortisol – a stress hormone. This growth is causing, in its turn, increased level of glycemia, high blood pressure, decreasing immunity and increasing deposition of adipose tissue on the abdomen.
