Lack of sleep has been found to become a problem when it comes to getting the proper shuteye and rendering some health issues as well but now thanks to a study, such has been deemed a reason for gaining weight.
Apparently this was because people tend to become hungrier and lead folks to crave for “fattening” food, all traced to the brain activity of an individual as discovered by the University of California team.
With 23 participants taking part in the study, the team made use of an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) to monitor changes in brain activity for the individuals who were sleep deprived.
Among the fatigued individuals, the researchers noted impaired activity in regions of the cortex that evaluate appetite and satiation. Simultaneously, there was a boost in areas associated with craving.
