For the last week and a half, I've had a very hard time getting to sleep before 1 or 2am. The only other times I've had trouble sleeping is the night before a big stressful even (not the case here) and I took care of it with a single Benadryl. I'm getting frustrated because I've tried to solve this on my own and haven't had any luck.
I'm 80% paleo (I think? maybe more like 90%). I don't eat: wheat, rice, potatoes, sugar, more than 2 servings of fruit/week or corn. about 3x a week I have one small cup of coffee with breakfast. But I do eat: pastured butter and drink around a cup of organic whole milk or cream a day, 15g of 77% dark chocolate/day, the meat I eat isn't always grassfed or organic.
I was taking fish oil, and read on here that it causes insomnia, so I stopped taking it, no result. For the past month I haven't been as active as I usually am (went from 4+ hours a day of moderate exercise to nearly none) so I got off my butt and played some intense ultimate the other day. No result. Went to an obstacle course race training even yesterday and got my butt kicked, no result. Didn't fall asleep till 2 last night. I am on Lutera oral birth control. I tried getting up really early after a late and restless night in the hope of being tired by 11pm. Didn't work.
Breakfast is organic nitrate free bacon and eggs, I have a snack of carrots and nut butter or some smoked (sugar free) salmon, lunch is usually leftovers from the night before. dinner is usually some sort of meat (steak, fish, shrimp etc) with veggies sauteed in butter. I usually wake up hungry in the morning.
Also, I'm 25, female and weigh 62kgs/136lbs and I'm 5'2" tall.
