  1. I recently read your “Are these 10 sleep mistakes making you fat” ? Number 10 is get to bed at 10 or 11 pm. Could you explain to me why there is a difference between 8 hours of sleep between 10 pm and 6 am and 1 am and 9 am ? I am retired and there is absolutely no reason on this planet for me to get out of bed at 6 am. I hope you can help. Have a great day.

    1. Hello Lorne,

      The reason it is important to go to bed at the time specified is because between 10 an 2 your body is truly resting – but at 2 am cortisol levels naturally start to rise as the body prepares for the next day – this is explained in my book – and lots of articles as well that are available online. But we want you to enjoy your retirement! Just try not to watch TV too late or do other things that are too stimulating and will decrease the value of your restful sleep.
