"More Evidence That Sleep Deprivation Is Linked With Obesity"

"Researchers also found that sleep may impact appetite regulation because being sleep deprived has an effect on ghrelin, the appetite hormone, and leptin, which is what gives us the signal to stop eating because we are satiated.

Sleep deprivation increases the secretion of ghrelin and leptin, which then may increase how much food we consume."
