Yet another study has proven bad sleep can cause weight gain and sets you up for all sorts of health problems.

This time a 2-year study used smartphone sleep tracking tech to find heavier people had slightly shorter sleep durations and their sleep patterns were more varied and we’re talking about a difference of about 15 minutes' worth of sleep.

Remember, when you’re sleepy your hunger hormones go out of whack making you hungry -  you want to balance it So seven to 10 hours a night, stick to a regular bedtime and get up the same time every day, even on weekends.
