If you have a Snickers bar, and you've had enough sleep, you can control your natural response. But if you're sleep-deprived, your hedonic drive for certain foods gets stronger, and your ability to resist them may be impaired so you are more likely to eat it. Do that again and again, and you pack on the pounds.” in the article Study Explains Why a Lack of Sleep Gives You the Munchies.
