Poor Nutrition Can Bite Into Your Sleep, Experts Say
Date:2/11/2013

MONDAY, Feb. 11 (HealthDay News) -- What you eat can affect how well you sleep, according to a new study.

Grandner and his colleagues analyzed data from the 2007-2008 U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and found that short sleepers (five to six hours a night) consumed the most calories, followed by normal sleepers (seven to eight hours), very short sleepers (fewer than five hours), and long sleepers (nine or more hours).

As for eating a well-rounded diet, normal sleepers consumed the most varied diet, and short sleepers consumed the least varied diet, according to the study released online in advance of print publication in the journal Appetite.
