Sleeping through the night

by (307) Updated March 31, 2014 at 9:12 PM Created March 29, 2014 at 9:06 PM

Pre-paleo I would usually sleep through the night, now I almost always wake up in the middle of the night and it takes me 10-20 minutes to fall back asleep. What might be the cause, and do you have any suggestions for solutions? I do BP intermittent fasting.

Same here, I started the Paleo two weeks ago and I cant sleep, I am exhausted, body aches, headaches. I fall asleep ok but wake up a few hours later and can never get back to sleep. I ll try a sweet Pot.

I like warm almond milk with a tsp of gelatin blended in plus magnesium and melatonin before bed on my IF days.

Eat a small sweet potato with skin on before bed and you will sleep.

Low carb had me sleeping poorly. Not necessarily a Paleo issue. Once I started eating a potato/sweet potato during the day the issue went away. Eating before bed would make it worse for me, just having more carbs in my diet is the trick.

A common recommendation seems to be taking in some glucose/carbs before bed to boost your blood sugar/insulin. Usual suggestion is a tbsp of raw honey.
