When you are deprived of sleep, grehlin, a substance in your body, is increased and this makes you want to eat more. Not to mention that sleep deprivation reduces the amount of leptin in the body, a substance that suppresses appetite and lets you know when you are full. So, when you are sleepy your body tells you it is hungrier than it is and cannot let you know when you have filled up as efficiently as it could if you got enough rest. It is no coincidence that research has shown a corrilation. MSNBC reported that in a national study those who got less than four hours of sleep a night were 73 percent more likely to be obese than those who got the recommended seven to nine hours of rest, scientists discovered. Those who averaged five hours of sleep had 50 percent greater risk, and those who got six hours had 23 percent more.
