Ok, thank you for the reply. I have tried to read some of your articles but was wondering if you could point me toward the ones that are most helpful to a beginner (just been training and watching my macros for about 5 weeks now). My trainer also recommended carb cycling for 2 weeks to see how that goes…and I was looking for more info on the best foods to eat on my low days (esp since I am vegetarian) to still get my fats and protein but not too many carbs. Thanks for your help! So many ppl have raved about you on the Oxygen forum and I have already learned a lot from reading some of the articles you have posted. I feel like I will finally be losing fat the right way.
Modern humans often find themselves desynchronized from their internal circadian clock, due to the requirements of work (especially night shifts ), long-distance travel, and the influence of universal indoor lighting.  Even if they have sleep debt, or feel sleepy, people can have difficulty staying asleep at the peak of their circadian cycle. Conversely they can have difficulty waking up in the trough of the cycle.  A healthy young adult entrained to the sun will (during most of the year) fall asleep a few hours after sunset, experience body temperature minimum at 6AM, and wake up a few hours after sunrise. 
Hmmmm interesting. Funny you mention it because I was taking gaba not too long ago and it was in a mixture with some other stuff. Anyways, I think it was causing me to wake up kind of uncoordinated and feeling just kind of weird. Dissociative I guess you could say, which makes sense because it’s related to the NMDA receptors somehow I think. It supposedly “can’t” cross the blood brain barrier, at least this is repeated despite the fact that it can and does, it’s just an unreliable mechanism in which it does. Low levels of gaba were insinuated to absorb more in the brain also. I didn’t have this issue as if I took the full 750 mg I felt very strange consistently and none of the other supplements in the mixture would seem to do this.
