    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.
    The remainder is an unjustifiable, egotistical power struggle
    At the expense of the American dream, American dream
    Of the American

    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.
