Sleeping More Could Help You Cut Down On Sugar And Lose Weight

But a new study showed that by getting more sleep, people naturally choose healthier foods within a week, eating on average 10 grams less sugar each day.

Study participants in the group whose sleep was extended underwent a 45-minute sleep consultation which aimed to extend their time in bed by up to 1.5 hours per night. Another 21 participants didn't receive any sleep consultations.

"The fact that extending sleep led to a reduction in intake of free sugars, by which we mean the sugars that are added to foods by manufacturers or in cooking at home as well as sugars in honey, syrups and fruit juice, suggests that a simple change in lifestyle may really help people to consume healthier diets", said Dr Wendy Hall. They were also given a specific bedtime.

Half of the study participants were then helped to achieve longer hours of sleep than they usually get by asking them to follow four personalised tips such as to avoid caffeine, not to go to bed hungry or too full and by establishing a relaxing daily routine.

Boy dies from flu as OH hospitals report increase in cases
Earlier reports had said Australia's flu vaccine was only 10 percent effective, but that doesn't mean USA vaccines rated the same. There have been a total of 1,050 influenza-related hospitalizations and 34 deaths across the country.

"Pretty much everyone's New Year's resolution is to lose weight, to eat more healthily or to exercise more".

Earlier research has shown that more than one-third of USA adults get 6 hours or less of sleep each night - less than the recommended 7 to 9 hours, according to the study. All the participants had a motion sensor on their wrists which kept a record of their sleeping hours and also record the amount of time they spent in bed before sleeping.

The amount of sleep participants got each night proved to have a positive correlation with their diets. These participants also had a lower daily carbohydrate intake than the group that did not extend their sleep patterns, the study found. But while 57 per cent believed they had increased activity levels, their devices showed a "downward trend" from the overall group average of 500 steps an hour.

The group has provided a chart which contained some suggestions to get better sleep.

Vivo demos in-display fingerprint scanner at CES 2018
Apparently, this is made possible using the Synaptics optical sensor technology that Vivo has been trying to develop for years. The 6-inch phone doesn't have an official name yet, although it looks and feels very much like a near-final smartphone.

Lead researcher, Haya Al Khatib, also from Kings College added: "Sleep duration and quality is an area of increasing public health concern and has been linked as a risk factor for various conditions".

"This further strengthens the link between short sleep and poorer quality diets that has already been observed by previous studies", Khatib said.

He continued that they hope to further examine nutrient intake and sleep patterns, especially in longer-term studies and populations that are at a higher risk of obesity or cardiovascular problems.

Those who stay in bed longer were found to consume 2½ fewer teaspoons of sugar per day - around 40 calories.
