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

Top takeaways:

• 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
