(WFLX) - Did you get enough sleep this morning? Chances are if you did, and you want to lose weight, you're on the right track.

A new study found men who slept only four hours a night consumed an average of 560 extra calories the next day than when they slept for eight hours.

Given the findings, researchers say, lack of sleep could be one of the factors contributing to the nation's obesity epidemic.
