Polyphasic sleep and sleep dept tolerance
Has anyone here tried polyphasic sleep who also had a higher tolerance for sleep deprivation?
The longer I've ever stayed up was 5 days in a row, I use to stay up for 3 days in a row routinely, but stopped as soon as I didn't need to anymore.
I can still pull all nighters pretty easily, and after about 25-27 hours is when I catch a second wind, that actually makes it difficult to fall asleep.
I'm just curious if anyone else is like this, and if it made switching to a polyphasic sleep cycle more or less difficult.
I'm doing biphasic right now (1.5 hour nap in day, 3-4.5 hour core sleep) and it's actually been easier than monophasic for me. Monophasic I absolutely could not sleep less than 8 hours, I always slept 10-11 hours.
Not sure if this is important or not:
I've also cut gluten out of my diet, and noticed more energy. I quit gluten in June for 2 weeks, and started biphasic sleep at the same time. After 2 weeks I started eating gluten again and my sleep cycle fell apart. I cut gluten again and just a few days later I'm back on biphasic sleep and feeling fine.
