I've been strictly Primal (I love dairy mkay?) for 9 months now. It's been a great ride and a pretty easy one at that. My only issue is that I get a massive burst of energy after dinner and find myself snacking in order to drive my insulin levels out of whack and make me sleepy. This could be a bite of chocolate, handful of dark chocolate covered almonds, scoop of grassfed ice cream, handful of blackberries or other assorted fruits - sometimes with yummy nutbutters... you get the idea. It's like my body instinctively knows that the tiniest kick of sugar will make me crash and help me get to sleep at night.
Does anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions on how to "get tired" around 11pm? I suffer from "can't shut my brain off syndrome" and have tried meditating before (helpful but doesn't cure), turning off the lights (pitch black darkness), listening to soft music, taking a warm shower... I'm running out of ideas. Hack me Paleo friends.
