Does sleeping more help you lose weight? from Healthytips's blog

Lack of sleep also affects hormone levels. 

First, it increases the production of ghrelin and decreases the circulation of leptin. These changes reinforce hunger signals and decrease feelings of satiety, respectively, increasing the likelihood of overeating.

Lack of sleep also increases the stress hormone cortisol. Prolonged waking hours are perceived by the body as a form of stress, so cortisol production is triggered to provide additional energy. Resurge Supplement Review

In fact, a University of Chicago study found that dieters who slept an average of 5.5 hours / night lost significantly more lean muscle mass than their counterparts who slept an average of 8.5 hours / night. This is problematic because loss of lean muscle mass hampers metabolism and makes it difficult to lose or maintain weight , even on a strict diet.
