The researchers noted that the “reward center” in sleep-deprived participants activated more when they looked at junk foods than at healthy foods. The “reward center” in well-rested participants did not activate as much as the other group when looking at Red Sole Shoes junk food. “Our data strongly suggests that if you’re trying to control your weight, being sleep-deprived is not good for you,” said study researcher Marie-Pierre St-Onge of the New York Obesity Researcher Center, according to msnbc. The second study, unlike the first, did not find a significant difference in activation level of Red Bottom Shoes the “reward center” between sleep-deprived participants and well-rested participants. In this study, patients either had a full night of sleep or were forced to stay awake for 24 hours.
Researchers from the University of California at Berkeley still made an interesting discovery. They found that the sleep-deprived participants had less Red Bottom Heels measurable activity in the frontal lobe of their brains; the part of the brain that helps with complex decision-making. This group was also more interested in the junk food. This finding suggests that sleep-deprived patients may not be able to make healthy eating Christian Louboutins Outlet choices when faced with healthy and unhealthy foods. “When you’re sleep-deprived, you might not make appropriate food choices,” said study researcher Stephanie Greer, a graduate student at the university, according to LiveScience.
Both studies were presented Sunday at the Associated Professional Sleep Societies annual meeting in Boston. National Donut Day celebrates the donut, the unhealthiest of all unhealthy foods. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg celebrated National Donut Day with Christian Louboutins Shoes a proclamation just days after defending a proposed ban on soft drinks in cups larger than 16 ounces.
