You probably already know that a night of tossing and turning makes you groggy the next day, or that pulling an all-nighter leaves you exhausted.
According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, ongoing sleep deficiency can increase your risk of heart and kidney disease and high blood pressure.
The study found that people who slept around four hours a night ate more snacks like Doritos, Cheetos and ice cream than those who got closer to eight hours.
To stay healthy, the National Sleep Foundation recommends adults get seven to nine hours a night. Any less than that and it may be time to speak to a doctor.
