Transcripts make it easier to use the information. You may just prefer to read. But having transcripts and video or audio can massively increase your productivity. For example, you can listen while you are washing the dishes, commuting to work, or doing other menial tasks, getting familiar with the material and scanning for things you want to learn more about. Then you can come back and keyword-search the transcript for the exact things you want to master in more detail.

  1. How much carb does it take to get the tryptophan to slip through at night? I remember Kathleen DesMaisons used to promote having a small potato at night. I’d rather have sweet potatoes because they’re tastier when eaten plain. It appears that if roasted, they have as much a glycemic hit as white potatoes (but not when boiled, interestingly). How much? 1 small? 1/2 medium? Certain number of ounces or calories to shoot for?

    How much tryptophan should I take with it?

    My sleep is terrible and I’m getting desperate. All the blue-blocking, morning light, dark room, GABA, bedtime glycine, isn’t stopping the crazy onset, mid-night, and early-waking insomnia.
