Chronic sleep loss can reduce the capacity of even young adults to perform basic metabolic functions such as processing and storing carbohydrates or regulating hormone secretion, report researchers from the University of Chicago Medical Center in the October 23 issue of The Lancet. Cutting back from the standard eight down to four hours of sleep each night produced striking changes in glucose tolerance and endocrine function -- changes that resembled the effects of advanced age or the early stages of diabetes -- after less than one week.

I'd have to hunt down the original articles to see if I believe the way it's presented in the article, but as any sleep-deprived parent or grad student knows, you sure do start craving carbohydrates, so maybe that is part of it.

Why not? I bet you use more calories than you consume when you are sleeping.
