This comes as no surprise as when you work with large numbers of people with insomnia you soon come to realise that their decision making processes are impaired. However, what is interesting is the increase in desire for high calorific food.

When most people start looking at losing weight, they pay particular attention to eating more fat free foods and doing more physical activity.
Yet, lots of those on a diet probably wouldn’t give thought to just how a scarcity of sleep in just one night could be sabotaging the weight loss results they’re trying to achieve. The vast majority of dieters certainly wouldn’t believe that sleep quality could have a health impact on the whole family.
In the report, they highlight recent research that shows how a lack of sleep alters food shopping habits. This happens when a person experiences just one sleep deprived night. They were more likely to not only purchase increased calorie foods, but also even more of it than they would in a typical food shopping trip.
In order to combat the impact connected with food cravings on their buying selections, the volunteers were all provided with breakfast prior to being presented with various foods they were able to purchase, having a personal financial budget of approximately £30. Having said that, even after eating, the participants paid for more calorific meals after a, less than ideal, night’s rest than they did after having a decent night’s slumber.
The report also makes the observation that even when sleep is improved upon the following night; they are still left with the unhealthy food choices of the previous day, stored in the fridge and cupboards that the whole family will eat.
The report explains how the changes in hormones in the body cause changes in feelings of hunger and increased impulsiveness, which resulted in choosing a lot more food, and foods with higher calorie content.
