I ask because I can sleep 4.5 hours (3 REM cycles I'm guessing) and wake up and be fine(no obvious loss of energy/mental acuity), though I have to force myself out of bed(but don't we all?). On the other hand I can sleep 8 hours and easily go... (more)

Hi. For some weeks I've been following the guidelines about this. Sporting after waking up, and not eating carbs after (sometimes don't eating anything at all even for some hours). Something I wanted to ask is why the sport-after-waking-up thing,... (more)
