Lack of sleep seri­ous­ly affects your fig­ure.

It is obvi­ous that lack of sleep has a neg­a­tive impact on phys­i­cal and moral well-being: lack of ade­quate sleep affects the immune, ner­vous and car­dio­vas­cu­lar sys­tems. How­ev­er, the results of a new study by sci­en­tists from King’s Col­lege Lon­don seem to be even more frus­trat­ing for those who watch their fig­ure but sleep less than 7 hours a day.

Don’t self-med­icate! In our arti­cles, we col­lect the lat­est sci­en­tif­ic evi­dence and opin­ions from respect­ed health experts. But remem­ber: only a doc­tor can make a diag­no­sis and pre­scribe treat­ment.

Experts have found that due to lack of sleep, a per­son overeats by an aver­age of 385 calo­ries per day. More­over, the qual­i­ty of the diet also decreas­es: instead of pro­tein foods and healthy snacks, peo­ple choose fast car­bo­hy­drates and fat­ty foods.

Is 385 calories a lot?

Endocri­nol­o­gist Zukhra Pavlo­va believes that this is a rather impres­sive fig­ure: “Almost lunch or din­ner.” In her Telegram chan­nel, the expert explained which dish­es and prod­ucts con­tain 385 calo­ries:

  • Half a kilo of low-fat cot­tage cheese or 150 grams of fat;
  • 200 grams of stewed beef;
  • 6 hard-boiled eggs;
  • 4 pota­to pan­cakes with a spoon of sour cream;
  • A notice­able piece of cake;
  • 100 grams of brie cheese.

The endocri­nol­o­gist notes that burn­ing 385 calo­ries is not so easy: a 5‑minute snack will result in an hour of cycling, 45 min­utes of run­ning, or spring clean­ing that lasts half a day. “Oth­er­wise, they will set­tle on the sides at a rate of about 40 grams of fluffy fat per day,” notes Pavlo­va.
