Sleeping late results to weight gain

Its logical that for every adulthood and adolescence person this period is filled with late nights due to busy work schedule and nights being the time to have some personal time before bed. But through a study it has been deduced that it have many negative affects over us in later times. As later bedtimes particularly results in weight gain. This research was done by Lauren Asarnow, of the University of California-Berkeley and his colleagues from NY, where they observed the link between the Body Mass Index (BMI) and the timings of hitting the bed.
National Sleep Foundation has already published that a teenager of age around 14-17 should sleep for 8-10 hours and young adults should aged 18-25 should sleep fro 7-9 hours. But as we all know in our busy and hectic schedule this seems to be impossible. However the reports says that 31% of high school going students have sleep less than 8 hours and 30% adults reports of less than6 hours sleep which is really alarming.  The team has deduced that the later the person moved to bed the more probable is his weight gain and it is about BMI of 2.1 kg/m2 for every one hour less sleep.
