  • People will drink significantly more sugar sweetened and caffeinated drinks if they get little sleep.
  • Sleeping for less than five hours predisposed people to drinking 21 percent more sugar sweetened, caffeinated beverages.
  • By improving their sleep, people can then improve on their ability to break the habit and limit their sugar intake.
