Could how you eat be related to how you sleep?

FOX's Colleen Cappon reports in this edition of "Housecall for Health":

If you're a junk-food-junkie, sleep habits may be to blame.

Researchers at the University of California used brain scans to find a lack of sleep causes changes in brain activity, leading people to feel hungrier and crave more fattening foods. Participants who got a full night's sleep did not show the same results in MRI testing. Experts say sleep deprivation is becoming a major factor in the obesity epidemic.
