Sleep Well, Eat Well!

Getting more sleep won’t just make you feel better – it could improve your diet too, according to a study at King’s College London.

Researchers found that short sleepers (less than seven hours) who increased their shut-eye by an hour and a half a night decreased their intake of free sugars (the type added at home or to processed foods, as well as in honey, syrups and fruit juices).

Government guidelines suggest we should be restricting these sugars to 30g (7 tsp) a day.

The study also noted a trend towards reduced intake of total carbohydrates in those who started sleeping more. So aim for more sleep to help you ditch those cravings!
