I just have a quick question. So I usually wake up around 4:30am and then around 6:30 to nurse my baby. We co-sleep so I don't have to really get up but sometimes during the 6:30 feeding I wake up really zippy but force myself to go back to sleep anyway. I am trying out Dr. K's Leptin program but I usually eat the 50 grams of protein around 9AM when the baby and I wake up and actually get up.
I'm wondering, the first time I wake up around 6:30 and when I get that zippy feeling, is that cortisol and therefore I should be eating then? Or can I continue to wait till we both wake up together and still get the benefit?
I don't really want to get up at 6:30AM to eat because I have interrupted sleep as it is nursing a baby, but I also want to take care of this inflammation issue I'm having because my most recent blood test showed a high CRP reading.
thoughts? Am I over-thinking this?
