Response: We knew from prior research that sleep deprivation can stimulate appetite and cravings for junk food, and increases weight gain. What we did not know is whether we can do something about it in real-life?

Our randomized controlled trial on sleep extension in real-life setting  found that getting sufficient sleep reduces caloric intake by on average 270kcal per day.
