Dear Friday
If you are lucky enough to be able to take an afternoon nap, there is no reason why you can't have a nap. This should not hamper your weightloss. I would however, not sleep quite so long. A nap implies sleeping for about 30 min to 1 hour. Sleeping longer may interfere with your sleep at night and disrupt your sleeping patterns.
