A new study suggests that INCREASING the amount of sleep that you get could lead to DECREASING the amount of food you eat (and we've REDUCED the price of our famous diet book, so that YOU can reduce too), but the results may differ between men and women.

Researcher Marie-Pierre St-Onge says, "We were surprised by the lack of a significant effect of sleep on glucose and insulin."
