Wow! I wish I had known all this 35 years ago when I was burning the candle at both ends and oftentimes in the middle. Yeah!

Really disappointing article. It was as satisfying as a candy bar. I am confident the majority of people know this information already.

So basically this article points out that nearly every expert disagrees on virtually every topic discussed, except for when to have sex. Brilliant!

What information? There were so many contradictions and stated "facts" that are simply not true, it was hard to find any substance.

I told my employer my best time is during the earlier part of the day but everyone comes in at 9:30-10:00 and stays till 7:00 or so. Someone said you're perceived as working harder during the later part of the day. Sorry, 8 hours is 8 hours. I think your best time is YOUR best time. Great, now insurance companies will dictate more of my life.

There's enough debate and ambiguity over timing issues that they may as well not matter - certainly no universal magic bullet. Whatever works best for you is what's best in terms of timing - more important to eat healthy foods in moderation, sleep an adequate amount, and get some excercise. Oh, and wake up with sex.

The point is that everyone has there own personal circadian rhythm. We all know morning people and night people. You have to decide what works best for you. There is no "normal" or "best time" to eat, exercise, or sleep. Find you own "best times" and you will feel better. Unfortunately, most work places can't make allowances for all of these differences, so try get back to your natural circadian rhythm on days off. You'll feel better.

Like most typical American's I sleep well with a little assistance..I eat fast food which has quite of bit of fat, I drink on average a six pack of beer and little wine with my meals, I do take blood pressure meds for my high blood pressure and pain medication for my sore joints, I also take sleeps meds for insomnia and restless legs..I do cheat a little in the morning with a "pep" pill to shake off the groggiest, but most of the time I feel great if I stay in my routine....they tell me I should exercise more when I hit my thirties..:(
