    Just out of curiosity: How many hours do you sleep a night? Are you an early riser?


    I sleep about 7-8 hours a night. I used to wake up around eight, but am now trying to wake up at six -- I find I feel better mentally and physically if I wake up earlier in the morning. I'd love to be one of those people who can effortlessly wake up at five every morning. I'm someone who likes to exercise in the morning, so the earlier I wake up, the better.

    I usually drift off about 11 or 12 and get up around 6 so 6-7 hours


    Since going primal I tend to wake up at sunrise feeling energetic, whenever that may be - It's the weirdest thing. Also when I am in ketosis and especially when I IF, I wake up feeling extra energized and focused and can push harder in my morning workouts. Anyone else noticed this?

    I sleep around 7 hours a night but never wake up energized, I wish I did. I wish I knew what I was doing wrong.

    Probably around 7-8 hours. I don't think it's top quality sleep though...

    I get 7-8 hours, but I've always been slow to get up. I usually lay in bed for 10 minutes listening to the radio before I can wake up enough to get out of bed. 6am is just not a good time for me 7-7:30am seems to be when I wake up if I'm not on an alarm clock.

    My wife and I have our own humble food blog. Not 100% primal, but we try to keep it interesting.

    I get between five and ten hours a night. Just depends on how late I get off work and how late I have to go back in.

    Usually about eight hours. Before I went Primal I could sleep for ten hours and still feel tired the next day.

    Usually around 8. In bed around 9 and up at 5 or 10-6. Weekends will sometimes vary.

    I grok, therefore I am.

    generally, around 7-8. i usually conk out about 10:30-11:00 & then i'm up around 6:30 or so. i'm lucky that i don't have to be at work until 9:00am & only live about seven minutes away, so if i feel the need to sleep in, i do.


    of course, i've been under the weather the last few weeks, so i've let myself sleep as much as possible.
