From the YMCA of Central Ohio:

Sleep Your Way Slim: Here’s another reason not to skimp on sleep: According to new research published in the journal Sleep, the fewer hours you log sleeping, the more difficult it is to gauge portion control in your diet.  The study found that sleeping less than the recommended seven to eight hours per night makes it more difficult for women, specifically, to put the brakes on a meal once they start eating. This is because the lack of sleep affects levels of GLP-1, a hormone responsible for letting the brain know when the stomach is full. So the next time you don’t get a full night’s sleep, make sure those tired eyes pay extra attention to portion sizes.
