Researchers at the University of leeds in the U.K. followed 1600 adults examining their sleep, diet, weight and overall metabolic health. They found that those who slept an average of six hours each night were about 1.2 inches larger waistlines than those who slept nine hours per night.
The ones who slept less also had lower HDL (Good) cholesterol levels.
Make sure you don’t drink any caffeinated beverage or alcohol 3 hours before you retire for the night.
