Why we sometimes make *crazy* food choices when we’re tired
Jackie helps you do something about that.
Published January 5, 2021
Staying aware of your sleep (or lack thereof) can provide some much-needed context for those days when you’re feeling like every plate or bowl is bottomless. Spoiler: It’s not our own (perceived!) lack of “impulse control” that’s causing us to eat more. Today, Jackie helps you ditch that myth and consider a few ways we can prep ahead for the day after those restless nights instead.
Your day 24 guide
• Not getting enough sleep can impact appetite hormones (leptin and ghrelin) that affect feelings of hunger and fullness.
• To make better choices after a bad night’s sleep:
- Remember to eat and drink consistently
- Stock up on ZeroPoint foods
- Consider coffee (yes, really!)
- Just go to bed
