A poor nights sleep may leave you yawning and eating more the next day.

A new british study found sleep deprived people consumed an average of nearly 400 extra calories a day.

They also tended to eat more fat and less protein.

And while one day of overeating may not matter, experts say people with chronic sleep disorders could be at risk of significant weight gain.
