Hit snooze: Study shows that more sleep can stop sugar cravings

Half were given help to sleep longer (being told to avoid caffeine, establishing a relaxing bedtime routine and not going to bed too full or hungry) and the rest carried on sleeping their usual amount.

Free sugars are added to foods by manufacturers or in cooking at home and are also present in honey, syrups and fruit juice. Sleeping longer also reduced the total intake of carbohydrates. During the seven day study period, on average the groups added 90 minutes to their daily sleep patterns. Only three managed to average seven to nine hours of sleep a night.

And they also cut down on their carb intake. These were found out when a group of people slept who slept 7 hours were given extra 21 minutes of their sleep. They unearthed extending sleep patterns caused a 10-gram lowering of reported ingestion of absolutely free sugars compared to baseline amounts.

86 percent of the people in the sleep consultation group increased their amount of time in bed, and half increased their actual time spent asleep, from 52 to nearly 90 minutes.

It's not clear exactly why sleeping more improves our diets in this way but the researchers think it's probably a combination of two things: more time in bed leaves less time for late-night snacks while the less exhausted we are the less we crave sugary foods such as ice cream and chocolates to make us feel better.

The team suggested that any new sleep routine will take some time to get used to.

A recent study has found that an extra 20 minutes of sleep could help people in cutting down the consumption of unhealthy food and sugar by nearly 10g.

Lead researcher Haya Al-Khatib from the Department of Nutritional Sciences said: "Sleep duration and quality is an area of increasing public health concern and has been linked as a risk factor for various conditions". We have shown that sleeping customs can also be changed using relative simplicity in healthy older people utilizing a lively approach.

'Our results also suggest that increasing time in bed for an hour or so longer may lead to healthier food choices.

And they found that 86% of the group who slept longer managed to increase their sleep time by an average of 21 minutes - and after a month of better sleeping, cut their sugar intake by nearly 10g - a third of their daily allowance.

This isn't the first study to link diet and sleep.

A longer night's sleep might be the key to curbing your snacking habit, according to a new study.
