Abstract

In this issue, Spiegel and colleagues raise much food for thought (so to speak). If their findings on changes in leptin and ghrelin during sleep deprivation are reproducible and generalizable, and if these hormonal changes cause changes in food intake over time, we may add inadequate sleep to the environmental factors that contribute to weight gain and obesity.
