Over the next week, participants wore motion sensors to bed and kept diaries detailing their sleep patterns and daily diets.

A study by researchers at King's College in London found that getting the adequate amount of sleep each night can lead you to eat fewer junk foods that are loaded with sugars and fats.

There was some evidence that sleep quality deteriorated in the sleep extension group, which the researchers attribute to a change of routine.

If you want to lose weight, go to sleep.

Of those receiving sleep advice, 86 percent increased time spent in bed, and half increased their sleep duration (ranging from 52 minutes to almost 90 minutes).

"It's not a conscious decision but on a physiological level, if you're constantly sleep deprived you're much more susceptible to biscuits lying around in your office or your cupboard", she added. The other group was not given any such advice and continued their usual sleep routine. A new small study from the United Kingdom suggests that may be the case. However, the researchers admitted that further long term studies needed to be conducted to assess the link between sleep and the "risk of obesity or cardio-vascular disease". These extended sleep patterns were associated with an average reduction in the intake of of 10 grams a day.

But missing out on the recommended minimum of 7 hours of nightly shut-eye is also linked to various health conditions, such as obesity and cardiometabolic diseases, which include diabetes, heart disease and stroke, according to the study, published today (Jan. 9) in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

'Our results also suggest that increasing time in bed for an hour or so longer may lead to healthier food choices.

Dr Wendy Hall, of King's department of nutritional sciences, said: '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'. The study shows that more than one-third of US adults get 6 hours or less of sleep each night which is lower than the standard sleeping time.

86 percent of individuals who received sleeping advice increased time spent bed and also a half increased their sleep interval. A study into extending sleep unexpectedly found that the recommended eight hours a night could also improve your diet, by significantly reducing sugar intake.
