8 hours – the amount of sleep needed to prevent weight grain. Tired people have less leptin (a hormone that tells you when to stop eating) and ghrelin (to let you know when you’re hungry), as well as a bigger appetite and weight gain. Tired people hug themselves with food – get some sleep and hug a tree instead.
