sleep notes

sleep deprivation has been found to boost levels of the hormone ghrelin – a hormone that stimulates appetite.

Sleep deprivation can also lower levels of the hormone leptin.   Leptin not only suppresses appetite, but also speeds the metabolism. 

Leptin is the efficiency control hormone. High leptin, lower efficiency.

I know I eat more when I am tired, now some one has stated why.

It is my opinion that these are minor effects. My fundamental cause of overeating is some kind of food, see, know it is there,-eat - imprint,  or other non hunger related cause. Hunger occasionally also comes into play.
