Update: I've had a chance to listen to it and it's great. Highly recommended. Can't wait for part 2 and 3.

I found that I had the best sleep when I was on Keto diet. if I wanted, I could sleep for 9 hours.

if you are struggling with weight loss, Keto is a good place to start. I lost 22 pounds in 3 months, going from BMI of ~26.5 to 23.8.

Vegetarians find Keto hard, but there are lots of options. PM me if you want to know more.

Many valuable insights form Mr. Walker.

I like the way he suggests that there is more than correlation between sleep and other mental parameters, that there may a cause and effect going in two directions and that the causality from quality/quantity of sleep to other endpoints has been vastly underestimated.

Sleep needs of children is another interesting topic and the following reference ties together several concepts (figures 5.4 and 5.5): correlation versus causality, potential confounding variables and the Easterlink paradox.

A nice correlating feature found in figure 5.5 is that the listed happiness-related activities help to balance the caloric balance.

I'm re-listening to this one (the three parts) a second time. So many important things, impossible to retain it all after just one listen.

I also got my Oura ring since, which helps a lot with tracking how I sleep.
