No can do...it would mess up my gym/work schedule. My last meal of the day is always around 6:30pm...I do not eat anything after that time...so when I wake up in the morning, I am HUNGRY and want to eat NOW! LOL It's not that big of a deal for me to run downstairs, grab the pill out of the fridge, and return back to bed to do my stretches. I can adapt to that easier than I can switching the time I eat my breakfast. Thanks for your help!Linda
or you could just put your breakfast back 30 minutes! make it as easy for your self as you can mate, no stress!cheersIan

Hi Amanda,I usually go to bed around 10-ish...depends on when I leave work (I work evenings). I emailed the manufacturer (Garden of Life) of the probiotic that I'm taking (Primal Defense Ultra)...and they told me that I do NOT have to refrigerate any of their probiotics...so that's good news. This means that I can keep a stash on my nightstand and take 1 in the morning without having to run downstairs to get it out of the fridge. So that is my new plan...1 in the AM before waking up, 1 in the afternoon before I go to work, and 1 right before bedtime.
Linda,If you eat at 6:30 and take your probiotic right before bed (I'm assuming with your early wake up time you probably go to bed around 9?) I think you'd be okay. I always take mine right before bed. My tummy is just too unpredictable to take anything in the mornings. I try to take my probiotic at least 3 hours after eating.
