Sleep Problems
Im eating paleo style and high/mod fat, mod protein, low carb style.

One problem ive noticed the last days is the problem sleeping. Its like i cant sleep as heavy and good anymore. I wake up every 1-2 hour and my sleeptime has drecreased to around 5-6 hours. Something is wrong, what can cause this? ive never had this problem before. Has it something to do with vitamins? minereals?

Make sure that you are eating enough. Once you switch to low energy-density foods, you need to eat a larger volume of food.

Do you get sleepy after eating a meal, even a small one? That's what happened to me... http://performancemenu.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2602

How about drinking enough water? Does it to me every time. If I get dried out I do not sleep well at all!

Don't eat too much right before bed. It messes with sleep. I stop eating between 6 and 8 pm and go to bed around 10:30 or 11 so my stomach isn't full when I hit the sack.

Waking up often during the night can often be helped by two things:

Not drinking a whole bunch of fluids with/after dinner. Having to pee will wake you up for sure.

Getting some supplemental magnesium, possibly in the form of ZMA or Natural Calm, helps greatly with secondary insomnia (not being able to stay asleep).
