    UNDATED (CNN) -- Failing to get enough shut eye at night could be sabotaging your diet. That's coming from a new small study by Swedish researchers.

    They looked at 12 men over a two-night period. One night, the men were completely sleep deprived. The other night, the were allowed to sleep.

    They found the men tended to be hungrier after getting no sleep, even though their blood sugar levels were the same as if they had slept.

    Researchers say the findings show lack of sleep could be leading us to eat more when we don't need to.
