(WKBW/Cleveland Clinic) Sometimes less can mean more, but in this case, it's not a good thing.
A recent study found people who sleep fewer hours tend to eat more calories a day.
Columbia University researchers found that people ate nearly 300 more calories when they were sleep deprived compared with when they were well-rested.
Overall, most of the extra calories came from high-fat foods such as ice cream and fast foods, and women took in about 60 more calories and 31 more grams of fat a day than men when both were sleep deprived.
Doctors say if you have trouble getting to bed on time, develop a routine and stick to it.
