Losing sleep tends to make people eat more and gain weight, according studies that examine the impact of sleep deprivation on the brain.
The research indicates that sleepless elders and adults experience brain changes in their response to high calorie foods. Without sleep, participants had stronger responses to foods like potato chips and ice cream.
This can prove dangerous for adults and elders who suffer form conditions such as diabetes or obesity. With lack of sleep compounding the problem, individuals are more vulnerable to sickness due to a weakened immune system.
