Step 2: Start your new schedule Start your new sleep schedule. Expect to suffer through sleep deprivation for the first two weeks, as your body adjusts to shorter sleep cycles. Tip Don't deviate! You are training your body to fall instantly into the all-important REM sleep that makes us feel rested. Missing even one nap—or oversleeping—will throw everything off. Step 3: Eat more Enjoy more food! One bonus of the diet is you'll need to consume more calories because your body will be active several more hours each day.
