When we are tired, our body needs energy. And we get energy from food and from sleep. And not only is our satiety hormone suppressed, we're also looking for quick energy. And so what happens is we tend to go for food with quick energy, unhealthy foods that are high in sugars, etc. And on average, we consume an additional 200 calories per day when we haven't had enough sleep.
