You may be eating too much if you're not getting enough sleep. Mayo Clinic researchers studied 17 healthy young men and women between the ages of 18 and 40. For eight nights, half the subjects slept their usual amount of time and the other half slept two-thirds their normal time. Participants were allowed to eat as much as they wanted.
