sleep issues


Recommended Posts

I am on day 24 of my whole 30 and everything is going well.  I have 3 main reasons for trying this plan.  1. to get off my over the counter sleeping pill 2. to see if this would improve early signs of arthritis 3 to see if there would be any improvement on my blood pressure.  After day 3 I was able to stop the sleeping pill and sleep fairly well through the night.  However for the past 2 nights I am back to waking up at about 2 am.  I toss and turn for a good hour and then fall back asleep.  Nothing has changed in my eating plan and I cannot figure out what is going on.


From what I learned in the book, I was consuming a steady stream of carbs and waking up in the night due to my blood sugar crashing.  I am no longer doing that, so I don't understand why I am waking up.


I am seeing some improvement in arthritis pain but not ready to say it has completely cleared.


No improvement in blood pressure.  I am not overweight and exercise 5-6 days per week.  It may just be the genetics I was given.


Any suggestions on the sleeping issue would be appreciated.
