Tired? Avoid The Grocery Store!!!

Sunday, November 17, 2013

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.

    I believe that. I try to stay away from stores of all kinds when I'm tired.

    I totally believe this. When I am tired I cannot even fathom cooking, so go to convenience food... Guess that's one more reason for a good night's sleep

    small sample size, though shopping while tired has seemed to cause a ton of snackages to jump into y cart on occasion

    Makes sense, because lack of sleep leads to increased ghrelin (the "I'm hungry and could eat a horse" hormone) and decreased leptin (the "I'm full and couldn't eat another bite" hormone). So with those hormones out of whack, it's a set up for craving sugary, salty, fatty snacks.''

    I totally agree. You should never shop tired or hungry. I used to do both and bought all kinds of junk food and that's how I ended up the way I did, well, one of the reasons. Thanks for sharing. emoticon
