I eat low-carb and often fast throughout the day. I am a skinny guy but not underweight. When I don't fast and actually eat something at lunch time, I get sleepy and drowsy (which is why I fast in the first place, I need a clear head when I work).... (more)
Does anyone here get very sleepy after eating a high fat meal (>50 grams)? What would cause fat intake to have such an effect? I feel almost drugged when I consume a lot of fat. Note, don't tell me it's because I am not fat adapted, I followed a... (more)

My poor little niece is 4 and has really terrible eczema. They have identified many things she is allergic to that cause flare ups: soy, milk, nuts, citrus, strawberries, and eggs are the ones I am aware of (because the poor thing has to wear a... (more)
I am doing well in my recovery but one thing really bothers me. Every time I eat protein, I get really sleepy. I did not have it before. I just developed it about one month ago. I mean really sleepy - I have to sleep for one to three hours after... (more)
I have never met anyone else who does but if there is try Himalayan Pink salt and you'll be so pleased you did if you have any of the effects I did with refined salts. I'd love to hear of other fixes similar people may have found.
Hello everyone I've been following the paleo diet for about a month now and find I'm not really missing carbs, but I'm experiencing something I don't understand. When I eat my meals about 2 hours later I feel very tired and sleepy. The only carbs... (more)
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... (more)
Carbs before bed shut down my body like crazy... I'm out COLD, yet my body is working hard to burn it and I'm overheating. It's such a weird feeling that I just don't like anymore. I've turned to calming and chamomile teas (check ingredients for... (more)
I've been doing the Paleo thing for about a week. My exercise level has stayed the same (3 days of CrossFit), but my meat consumption has gone from a few times a week tops to several times a day. The past few days I've felt absolutely exhausted,... (more)
Since pretty much birth, I've been a night owl - and hated getting up in the mornings. Since going paleo early this summer I have been feeling so much better - all around. Better skin, less bloating, better digestion, better mood, a tiny bit of... (more)
I've noticed something weird. My first mug of coffee in the morning wakes me up (I had it at about 5:30am) My second one (at 10:00am), made me feel sleepy a few minutes later. If I do drink a lot during the day, I can't sleep at night, so I do... (more)
Usually, when I eat chicken, it might as well have been a Xanax or Ambien. I mean it's all I can do to not pass out. This is not a problem with beef or pork (that I've noticed). Does anybody else have this issue? I know turkey has... (more)
I've been finding myself feeling sleepy even after I've had 8 hours of sleep. I'd sleep more if I could but my body cannot do more than 8. I've stopped vitamins, especially D, after 6pm. I try not to sleep with a full or empty stomach. My room... (more)
My husband and I just began going paleo/Primal and we have seen a pretty huge difference in only a few days-- my husband has lost weight and slept better being mostly paleo. I've been a lot stricter- no grain products at all- because if I don't go... (more)
