    What if you naturally have good energy and mental clarity at more like 11 or 12 hours of sleep? I easily can sleep twelve hours every night, and have no negative effects to report. Even before I was working night shift I could do a 12 hour nap every night.

    Check out the Hibernation Diet,
    which believes that honey is the most ideal food that can provide a fuelling mechanism for the liver at night.
    A daily spoonful or two of honey taken prior to bedtime can help us sleep better and lose weight at the same time.

    7-8 hours seems to be my sweet spot. More than that (unless I'm sick) and I'll start to feel groggy when I wake up, instead of refreshed.

    Though I remember reading an interview with Penelope Cruz a while back and she attributed her success at maintain her weight and youthfulness to getting up 12 hours of sleep per day (I'm guess that's night time plus a nap or two) . . . .
    Healthy Bucket List:
    • Summit all of Colorado's 14-ers
    • Hike the Appalachian Trail
    • Do a real pull-up
    • Run a 5k
    • Be "Hot For Training Camp"

    I haven't slept more than 8 hours since starting Primal. I don't know what the deal is, I just can't - even after some nights when I don't sleep much (I do call shifts for work), I can't seem to make up any sleep - maybe an extra hour at the most, and then I'm up.
