Fat Habit 10: Skimping on Your ZZZs

Slim Solution: This may be the simplest of all fat habits to break: Get more sleep.

One study found that adults subjected to only 5 hours of sleep for 5 days ate some 6 percent more in daily calories, and consumed a larger proportion of calories from snacks at night. While there is no magical number to strive for, most adults need about 7 to 9 hours a night.
