How do you feel about it? I'd be ok if the doctor thought it was...Maybe keep and eye on how it is making you feel?


This approach is fraught with potential problems, not least because your body evolved to be active during daylight, and sleep during darkness. No matter how much of a night-owl people think they are, going against this circadian rhythm is detrimental to their health, because of the disruption it causes to hormones.

How reliable are your scales?

It is likely to be the restriction of food that caused the weight-loss; sleeping during hours of darkness will improve your health even better.

Also, minimise your fructose intake, and avoid foods that spike your insulin levels.
