While most things have been improved since I’ve been eating the food, my sleep has a actually gotten worse. I have *always* been a heavy sleeper. Indeed while doing night time chores (milking y goat herd- takes about an hour) I wiuld usually dream of getting in bed. I used to joke bedtime was the highlight of my day. Just soooo tired (I dont do that now which is great). At night, my head hit the pillow and I was dead to the world until morning, except sometimes I would get up once to visit the little girls room. Well now, sometimes, it might take me 30-60 minutes to fall asleep? I’m not like wide awake or thinking about stuff, rather I seem to drift along right above sleep, almost there but not quite and come back up out of that a few times. And sometimes i wake ip too early. like 4:00-6:00, my alarm is ser for 7:00, im not one of those early risin farmers, ok :))Only bothers me because my ability to work hard the next day is directly tied to how I sleep that night. Any thoughts? I took 5htp and slept harder but felt like poo the next day each time I took it. For the mos part this is a minor problem but it seems strange to me.July 15, 2013 at 9:52 pm #9096Matt StoneKeymaster
I would start by playing around with your meal schedule a little bit. If I eat big late at night I have trouble falling asleep, wake up way earlier, and crash way harder after breakfast. I have a tendency to eat a lot more during the day and much lighter at night – and nothing too close to bedtime. That works for me. A lot of people I communicate with respond better to the OPPOSITE approach. Play around with that some and let me know if you feel any changes.July 15, 2013 at 10:18 pm #9104AshleyParticipant
You know, I used to never eat after supper.. never really wanted to. But yes, since I’ve been eating the food again I have been in the habit of eating at night, even right before bed. Not a lot but I used to eat nothing.. I will get my food in by supper and see if that helps. ThanksJuly 18, 2013 at 11:59 am #9417FinngarianParticipant
I’m one of the folks who needs a bedtime snack, otherwise I wake up too early. It’s usually something small like a bowl of cereal, I’m not talking a full-on meal. I started sleeping again after needing medication to sleep for the past 15 years or so. Never thought I’d be able to sleep without drugs because I kept waking up at 4 am for the day if I didn’t take them.November 9, 2013 at 1:26 am #13611HeatEnthusiastParticipant
