    Is it true that some people need only a few hours of sleep?

    Interesting read this Yoly ... thank you.

    Must say I'm a person that prefers about eight hours sleep a night - I'm not one that does well on just four or five hours sleep.

    Since living the low carb lifestyle I tend to have five pointers that I do my best to adhere to, and they are:
    1. I eat low carb
    2. I eat higher healthy fats
    3. I eat moderate protein
    4. I take regular exercise
    5. I try to keep an established sleep pattern.

    The one thing I struggle with is the sleep pattern ...

    But reading the article it would appear that, "the amount of sleep you need is genetically determined as much as your height or shoe size. Some people need very little sleep, others need 11 or 12 hours to feel their best."

    Interesting read - thanks again.

    All the best Jan

    I can believe it's genetic - my sister and I are both epic sleepers. For me, 8-9 hours seems to be normal if I don't set an alarm and allow myself to wake normally.
