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.

In Lights Out they recommend no T.V. or no Computer 1 hour before going to bed. What are you supposed to do one hour before bed? I haven't read the book yet so I'm curious if there are specific recommendations?

I've used a borrowed BioBrite SunRise in the past. It's pretty nice and works as advertised. The light is bright but not even close to the intensity of real sunlight through a window so results will vary depending on your particular sensitivity... (more)

From what I hear, DE is used to get rid of parasites, and parasites can cause waking in the middle of the night. The other 3AM wakeup root cause is low glucose. So maybe try to increase your carbs. Eat some starchy carbs with your dinner. ... (more)

If you are having problems sleeping then a dark room would be helpful...if you are sleeping fine then no need. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it is broke, buy blackout blinds.

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.
