Your “energy balance” plays a vital role in preventing excess weight gain. The goal is to balance the calories you eat and drink with the calories you burn through physical activity.
Healthy sleep helps your body maintain its energy balance. Ongoing sleep loss causes changes in your body’s hormone levels. These changes can increase hunger and cause you to crave junk food. Sleep loss also causes fatigue and sleepiness, which can result in reduced activity.
