User :   I wake up - go to the gym and then have to come home and sleep for 30 minutes then another nap for 30 minutes then my energy levels pick up at about 3:30 PM? My stomach is also a bit gurgly.
Doctor :   hi,
User :   hi
Doctor :  
User :   hello
Doctor :   it just the habit you have addicted to
Doctor :   you can change it slowly by decreasing the time of nap
User :   oh really - I feel really lethargic during the day and ussually am really active and busy

User :   I work out really hard in the mornings at least four days a week
User :   but I would usually get home and get on with my day - no I just need to go to bed! :-)
User :   it's driving me crazy
Doctor :   just get engaged with some interested work with some coffee ( if you want ), it may take time to deviate from the habit
Doctor :   but you have to give it a tough shot
