healthy sleep habits can make a big difference in someone’s life, but the work week make us all a bit short on sleep, which can be very dangerous, says a study.

In the Journal of Lipid Research, researchers at Pennsylvania State University reported that only a few days of sleep deprivation can make people feel less full after eating and metabolism of fat in different foods.

Sleep disturbances are known to have harmful effects on metabolism for some time.

Orfeu Buxton, a professor at Penn State and one of the senior author of the new study, contributed to many studies have shown that long-term sleep restriction puts people at higher risk of obesity and diabetes.

However, Buxton said, most of the studies focused on the metabolism of glucose, which is important for diabetes, while relatively little has been rated the digestion of lipids from food.

Kelly Ness, now a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Washington, ran the study when he was a graduate student in the laboratory of this Buxton. After participants spend a week getting much sleep at home, he said, 15 healthy men in their 20s checked into a sleep laboratory for the study of ten nights.

For five nights, the participants spend no more than five hours in bed each night.

To find out how to schedule uncomfortable affected metabolism, the researchers gave participants a standard high-fat dinner, a bowl of chili mac, after four nights of sleep restriction.

“It was very tasty – no subjects we had trouble finishing it – but very calorically dense,” said Ness. Most participants were less satisfied after eating the same foods rich while less sleep than when they eat well-rested.

Then the researchers compared blood samples from the study participants. They found that sleep restriction affects the postprandial lipid response, which leads to faster opening of the lipids from the blood after a meal.

This study is very controlled, which makes the model is not perfect for the real world, said Ness. It is focused on young people healthy, which is usually at a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, and all participants were male.

The researchers also wondered whether giving more recovery time will change the magnitude of their recovery was observed.

Nevertheless, according to Buxton, the study provides valuable insight on how we handle the digestion of fats.
