Short sleep duration is associated with decreased serum leptin, increased energy intake and decreased diet quality in postmenopausal women.
Bottom Line: Sleep duration/quality, insomnia, and dietary intake were determined via self-report.Furthermore, those with ≤6 hr sleep/night reported higher dietary energy intake (P = 0.01) and lower diet quality (P = 0.04) than the reference group (7 hr sleep/night).Women sleeping ≥8 hr also reported lower diet quality than the reference group (P = 0.02).
