When we don’t get enough sleep, we eat more to make up for the lack of energy. A new study shows exactly how much food we gorge on on those days when we’re dozing off. Results showed that people who slept less than 5.5 hours ate an average of 385 more calories than those who had a proper night’s rest. What’s even worse is that when you’re so tired, you’re much more likely to eat foods that are high in fat and skip protein.

Make sure you’re getting not only enough sleep but full, restful sleep with our Sleep Tracking Kit. These ingenious devices allow you to track your sleep to see what factors are affecting your Z’s and how to improve the quality of your slumber so you can be a better you.
