Does this mean that to lose weight we should hit the
hay earlier?


Well, going to bed late affects our eating habits, if
your bedtime varies by more than one hour, we are likely to consume
245 more calories in a week. 


To sleep better, our sleep expert, Nerina Ramlakhan
backs this advice; go to bed between 7pm and 11pm to increase the
cravings for vegetables, fruits, high-fibre carbohydrates, lean
proteins and heart-healthier fats. 


If you have trouble falling asleep, Dr Nerina says:
"Winding down properly before getting in to bed is crucial to
helping you sleep better. You are more likely to access efficient
deep sleep if you allow your body and mind to relax than if you
rush to bed feeling anxious - so even delay going to bed if
necessary".
