Eat a giant sweet potato bathed in butter... Seriously though eat some carbs!!! HF/LC can cause high levels of cortisol. Paleo is not low carb.

Naps are great and they allow you to get by on less sleep. We were meant to sleep in the middle of the day, all you have to do is look at youtube and see what savanna animals do between 1 and 4pm.

I know this isn't much of an answer, but probably something to talk to a doctor about. If you're having trouble waking up, there can be blood sugar issues that you don't want to mess with.
