So recently I had to have a night of about ~1.5 hours of sleep, because I go to sleep late and had to wake up early. When I don't sleep for an adequate amount of time I always feel like total shit the next day. So, in an effort to trick my mind into not feeling like shit, I typed into google "do you really need 8 hours of sleep?" Lo and behold, the first thing that popped up was some dubious study on "benefits" from shorter sleep patterns. The conclusions in the article says that proper sleep depends on quality instead of quantity. The author said that they were living a successfully active life off of 5-6 hours of sleep every night for years.
This seemed pretty crazy to me, until I looked up to the header of the article and saw that it was from the Bulletproof Coffee company! So now I'm onto their game: get everyone into the habit of sleeping for shorter periods of time, and then supplement their lethargy with an onslaught of caffeine! Genius! It all comes full circle. Who woulda thunk it?
Here's the article:
Slightly off topic but here in the UK coffee shops sell "bulletproof coffee" which is coffee laced with coconut oil. Not sure why you would ever mix those two things but people are strange I guess.
It gets even worse here in the US. Bulletproof coffee is huge within the Ketogenic Eating Community. They take hot coffee and add a tablespoon of organic virgin coconut oil and a tablespoon of grassfed butter, and then blend it into a frothy concoction. This is the equivalent of having a "fat bomb" and gives the person who drinks it loads of energy and no appetite so they don't have to eat anything for several hours. It's an extremely popular thing, believe it or not!
