I don't know, can someone explain?
Is it because you burn more calories or something?

Most of the time I only have 7 hours of sleep, I know really bad

7 Hrs isn't bad. Some ppl get 4. When you get 8 Hrs of sleep you do provide recovery for your brain and body. If you don't get enough sleep you will know. Symptoms would things like constantly grumpy, random colds, aching, slight memory loss, minimum body results from working out due to minimum recovery time....The list goes on. Yes we do burn calories when we sleep. However 7 hrs again isn't bad. Keep your head up you'll be fine.

7 hours is awesome. I count my blessings to get 6 good hours of sleep. Most people don't get that according to what I read.

Your brain gets tired and can lead to less productivity when awake, also sleep relieves stress. Of course, if you got no sleep for an extended period of time your brain would shut down and you would die of exhaustion. Hope this answered your question!

When the body does not rest enough, the hormones respond by increasing the hunger drive. What's worse, the hunger cravings are for the for the quickest most macronutrient  dense food available. Sleep is as important as diet!
