    NO nap after eating?

    I always wondered if it's bad (it seems so) for you to take a nap after you ate...

    Is it samething as sleeping for 8 hours?

    Nap = 30 mins - 2 hours.

    Will your body store a lot of the food as fat?

    If you are really worried about it, I would maybe try to decrease the carbs in your meal before you nap

    Healthy eating, active people don't have to worry about much of anything unless you are training for competition.

    I guess lack of sleep is something you should worry about.

    whenever i take a nap, i always wake up starving, even if i just ate prior to sleeping. I can't imagine that your metabolism will slow down substantially while you sleep for an hour or two. I don't think you have anything to worry about, because rest is only beneficial while tryin to put on quality muscle.

    talk about no life, what a sad example of misused time! especially when you only got 250 reps!

    and about the nap, keep it under 30 mins & make sure its midday, also go for a 15 min walk after eating (if your going to take a nap) to help digest the food, otherwise immediately taking a nap after eating is not good, it increases your cortisol & doesnt allow the food to digest properly.
    if you experiment you may also knotice how sleeping over 30-45 min leaves you feeling more tired then when you went to take the nap. if you feel tired after waking after 30 mins, it means you have to cut the nap down to 20-25 mins, and keep cutting the nap until you wake up feeling best, everybodies sleep cycle is different.

    I kinda wrote this reply sucky, so ill post again more detailed.

    ok, heres a better explanation

    Originally Posted by Ravi Dev

    This information is taken from Dr. Kacper Patowski's book "Powerful Sleep", www.PowerfulSleep.com, Dr. Patowski is a sleep researcher & has been treating insomnia patients for many years, while doing so he has come across some rather revolutionary (in my opinion anyway) discoveries in the feild of sleep research.

    +_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_ Beginning

    Powe Naps - The Secret to Energy With Little Sleep

    If done correctly, taking regular day-time naps will give you a huge boost of energy throughout the day.

    As you may recall, there is a natural "slump" in body temperature during the mid afternoon. This slump is what makes a lot of people sleepy during the day, and why so many people feel the need to take an afternoon nap! However, is taking a nap good for strengthening your sleep system? The answer is yes, & no.

    In many siesta countries, taking a regular nap is a normal part of the culture, i.e. spain, mexico. This has several effects:

    As you remember, we sleep though certain sleep stages, and sleep cycles. During the first sleep cycle, our body enters deep sleep for the longest period of time, its at this point that our body temperature begins to drop really low, our respiration, heart rate and blood pressure decreases.

    If you've ever been woken up out of "deep sleep", you know that its almost impossible to get up. Waking up during or after a major deep sleep phase makes you feel lethargic, slow, & disoriented i.e.: when you wake up during the night and go to the bathroom, you stroll in there like a Zombie, and dont even remember the next morning.

    It takes about 45 minutes to enter the first deep sleep phase. If you limit your nap to 45 minutes, you will sleep mainly in stage 2 sleep. stage 2 sleep also plays a major role in restoring physical energy, as you look at the previous chart, 50% of sleep is spen in stage 2 sleep. This is why you may have heard before that a simple 10 minute nap can totally recharge you. if you limit a nap to 45 minutes, you will wake up feeling recharged, and ready to go.

    However, if you take a nap for 45 minutes - 2 hours or longer, you will most likely enter deep sleep. Your temperature will begin to drop, and you'll wake up feeling very sleepy and disoriented. Also, when you enter deep sleep during the day, you put your body temperature rhythm out of whack, it may be difficult for you to go to sleep later on in the night. You will have difficulty sleeping deeply at night, which will have negative consequences for the day ahead, such as poor energy, headaches and nausea.
    Most likely resulting in more naps!

    As you see, taking long naps is not the way to go as you can enter a cycle of behavior resulting in poor energy levels and poor quality of sleep. This would affect your health and your life in big ways. Taking irregular naps is on way that sleep disorders develop.

    The correct way to take naps is to keep them ultra short. This will prevent deep sleep and recharge you physically. Some studies even show that taking short naps can reduce the incidence of coronary heart disease by as much as 30%!

    As part of this book, i would personally recommend that you do take a short nap during the day, you will be suprised at how energized you feel for the rest of the day when you do take one! Limit the nap to 45 minutes, if you still feel tired after the nap, then shorten the nap time. The amount of time required to enter deep sleep varies from person to person.

    Because everyone experiences the afternoon body temperature slump, we can assume that nature intended us to have an afternoon nap. Perhaps to keep our ancestors from the mid-day sun & dangerous predators out for the hunt???

    _+_+_+_+_+ end


    i had to re type this information from the pdf file.

    I would HIGHLY recommend purchasing his e-book, even though it somewhat lacks a little professionalism. the book teaches you how to HEALTHILY cut your sleep time down by improving the quality of your sleep. and you will NOT experiance the ill-effects lack of sleep.

    * like most e-books, it has a 100% money back gaurantee, so even if you dont like it u can always get ure money back & keep the book.

    you have my testimonial aswell as Tom Venuto's.
    Here is an article written by the (Tom) pro-natural bber and fitness trainer, i found the information to be quite profound & ground breaking.

    I really dont care about reps either, i just wanted to shoot someone down for pointing out how many times they posted becuase it just gets annoying seeing so many ppl doing it.

    No hard feelings m8

    also i wrote earlier

    sorry forgot to add why you should NOT sleep directly after eating, because it wont allow you to properly digest your food & due to this it will disrupt the sleep aswell. This is reputed by MANY Dr.s. (including Dr. Patowski), but just to quote it from 1 source i have read it from, though i have many just not off the tip of my toung, here it is:
    from "Food Combining and Digestion - Over 101 Ways to Improve Digestion" by Steve Meyerowitz, pg 9 2nd paragrapth:
    "Food eaten late at night (or befor a nap) sits in the stomach and often disturbs sleep. It gets poorly digested because the organ of digestion are in their resting and rejuvenation phase. Also, the secretion of digestive enzymes is reduced in the horizontal position. Dont take a nap after you eat. Take a walk!"

    I cant really qoute anyone here, though it is basicly what Steve is saying, but taking a 10-25 minute walk immediatly after eating improves your digestion. Walking stimulates the organs in the abdominal region, after all you are using all of your abs to walk-- if you ever got a hernia you will know what im talking about, walking hereby increases the output of digestive enzymes and increases protein absorption!

    Personally, I feel GREAT upon taking a walk after eating, and i recommend you take atleast a 10min walk before sleeping or napping.
