Researchers observed the sleeping habits of a group of women participants in the study and found that those who slept for less than six hours in a day consumed more calories compared to those who slept for seven or more hours.

The researchers suggested that when a person does not sleep properly, then his energy levels drop quickly, requiring caffeine or a snack to boost their energy, which in turn leads to consumption of additional calories.

"So all the ladies out there, who are aspiring for a bikini body and yet can not resist those mouthwatering pizzas and burgers, get set for a session of sound sleep first and do not let the habit slip out soon", the researchers wrote in their report.
