> Kudos! A full year is awesome. I am at about 9 months, averaging 4:48 over the past 5 months. 3x80.
Wow congrats to both of you! I've basically given up on short cores although I do keep napping during the day. So I go to bed when tired and wake up when rested, and do 0-4 naps during the day. My core ends up being between 4 and 8 hours, mostly around 6:30 especially now that it's dark outside. It works better with my unpredictable schedule and I feel more rested than either monophasic or E3.
> * have you gained any weight since you have been polyphasic. I have a real problem with snacking at night, especially carbs and sweets, and have put on about a pound a month. I have to figure out something to do about that.
Try snacking only on "paleo" foods: macadamia nuts, 80% dark chocolate, raw or cooked veggies, not-too-processed meats, aged cheese, berries and unsweetened heavy cream, coconut milk/oil, safe starches like (sweet or regular) potatoes with added fats etc. Avoid grains, legumes, sugar and grain-based oils and any products thereof. It may still make you heavier but at least you won't have blood sugar crashes and you will reduce cravings.
I feel a lot fitter and healthier on paleo. I started with http://archevore.com/get-started and now I really like http://perfecthealthdiet.com . Basically it was through polyphasic sleeping that I had the time to research Paleo so polyphasic sleeping made me a lot healthier :-)
I respond, "I do too! While you get to go to bed once a day, I get the privileged of having that feeling 4 times a day!"
Lisp, really? I don't know anyone who actively develops using that language...
