Food Tip Struggling to downsize your portions? Getting too little sleep can make us overeat, so be sure to get your shut-eye.
From Thanksgiving until the end of the year, many of us struggle to keep our portions in check. An easy way to help yourself do just that: Let visions of sugarplums dance in your head. A new study in the journal SLEEP found that when we don’t skimp on sleep, we have an easier time resisting sugary and salty treats.
According to the research, men and women who don’t get enough rest are much more likely to overeat. When weary from too little shut-eye, our appetite increases, and it can take longer to feel full. If you know you’re heading to the mall for some high-octane holiday shopping, be sure to get plenty of rest the night before; it could save you from an impulsive binge at the food court. Help keep your appetite and your weight in check year-round by clocking at least seven hours of sleep each night.
