Get Better Sleep And Crave Less Junk Food

One of the dangers of not getting enough sleep is craving junk food.
Recent research from UC Berkeley reports a study that scanned the brains of 24 participants after both a good and a bad night’s sleep.  After disturbed sleep, there was increased activity in the depths of the brain, areas which are generally associated with rewards and automatic behavior.
It seems a lack of sleep robs people of their self-control and so their good intentions are quickly forgotten Therefore,  those junk food cravings get out of control.
