So, Say I want to get back into the routine of waking up in the morning. I'm going back to school and I need to wake up around 6 or 6:30 am, And Im use to Sleeping pretty much all the time, pretty much usually 12+ hours. Waking up around 3 or 4 pm..If I start my fast at around 5-7pm..Then go to bed early enough like, 10ish wake up at 6 or so and have a healthy breakfast then? or do you have to stay awake the whole time? Do you think that routine that I mentioned would work? And one more question. Do you have to do this as a continual thing or just for one day? I know this site is for women mostly but..I think humans all kinda use sleep the same way :) I would appreciate a reply! Thanks. Im 18 if that makes any diffrence.
