The Interplay Between Eating and Sleeping Behavior in Adolescence: Normative and Disordered Trajectories

  • Yael Latzer
  • Sarah L. Weinberger-Litman
  • Leib Litman
  • Orna Tzicshinsky


The present chapter deals with the relation between eating and sleeping patterns among adolescents. The first part describes both normative and pathological changes in eating and sleeping behavior. In the second part, studies that examine sleep-wake patterns among adolescents suffering from eating disorders are presented. Finally, the importance of maintaining a balance between adolescents’ needs for autonomy and the supervision and support of parents as providers of healthy nutrition and sleeping habits is discussed.
