Not getting enough sleep can cause a person's appetite to increase, according to research by a team at Uppsala University in Sweden.
Those in hospital doctor jobs have been looking for reasons why people can become obese and now the Swedish medical team has highlighted sleep deprivation as a possible cause.
A person's appetite sensation is more highly-activated after losing one night's sleep as it is following normal night's sleep. Therefore a poor sleeping schedule can ultimately result in a person becoming overweight or obese over a sustained period of time.
The NHS found that in 2008 nearly a quarter of adults in England were obese with 32 per cent of women and 42 per cent of men being classed as overweight.
Christian Benedict, from the department of neuroscience at the university, said: "Bearing in mind that insufficient sleep is a growing problem in modern society, our results may explain why poor sleep habits can affect people's risk to gain weight in the long run."
