Lack of a week, two pounds, staying up late, tired, not fattening
American researchers have found that lack of sleep and even physical exhaustion, but also easy to gain weight.
Volunteers only slept for 5 hours a day and gained nearly one kilogram after 5 consecutive days.
Professor Ken White, a professor of sleep at the University of Colorado at Boulder, led a team of 16 young, slim, healthy adults who volunteered to live in the “sleeping room” of the University of Colorado Hospital for two weeks.
For the first three days, the researchers asked volunteers to sleep 9 hours a night, supplying them with energy that was only enough to keep their weight during the day.
In the next 5 days, the researchers arranged the volunteers to range, the first group slept 5 hours a night, and the second group stayed 9 hours sleep.
All volunteers can eat at will, a large variety of meat and fruit, yogurt, ice cream, potato chips and other snacks.
After that, volunteer volunteers changed their sleep time. The first group slept for 9 hours every night, and the second group slept for up to 5 hours.
Absorbed researchers replaced in the report published by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Long waking time means that the body needs to consume more energy, but the less sleepy volunteers absorb more than the consumption.
The results of the experiment showed that volunteers who slept for 9 hours at sleep scored 5% of the volume in a day, but converted to 6% more.
Volunteers who are not getting enough sleep often eat less breakfast, eat snacks after dinner, and snacks usually cause too much sugar and aunt.
As a result, the conversion of the snacks they eat exceeds any meal in three meals a day.
After less than 5 days of continuous sleep, the volunteers gained an average of two pounds (0.
91 kg), when the sleep time is too much, the volunteers add a small amount of aunt and the weight is reduced.
The so-called British media has quoted White’s words: “Our research shows that when someone is unconscious, they like to eat at night, and from a physiological point of view, this period of time is not suitable for eating.
White said that their findings show that adequate sleep helps people maintain a healthy weight, so people want to lose weight or maintain weight, enough to cope with healthy sleep.
“I don’t think that just sleeping more will make you lose weight.
Weight gain and obesity are quite complex, but too much sleep can have a role in slimming or maintaining weight.
“A number of previous studies have shown that lack of sleep is detrimental to health.
Sleep interferes with stress levels and blood glucose secretion decreases when awake; lack of awareness significantly slows down the body’s metabolism and reduces consumption; people who sleep less than 5 hours are prone to gain weight and are prone to weight-related diseases such as type 2 diabetes.
