In a recent Swedish study, 14 men either slept for 8 hours or stayed up all night at a sleep lab before eating the same breakfast. They were then told to pick $50 worth of groceries from a mock supermarket. Those who were asked to "shop" after staying up all night were more likely to buy high-calorie items such as doughnuts vs. healthier fare like veggies.
