I find that when I cut back on carbs to less than 50 or so a day, I need less sleep. It sounds a lot like you are experiencing, and what I've learned after eating more and fewer carbs is that my body runs better (and needs less sleep) when I eat fewer carbs. Maybe you should just see how you do sleeping when you are sleepy?

HI PIPPAGREY, I am new to Primal and this forum, but I would think that the majority of Grok's eating would be earlier in the day rather than around the fire at night. It will be interesting to find out from some of the more experienced people on here and to see what if anything I experience as I progress. The hot cider would be too sweet for me and don't know if that may be the problem for you, but if it was only once then don't think so. I guess try eating heavier earlier in the day and nothing after dinner. Hope you get some better answers soon. Hugs, Angela

I'll be the first to admit that I haven't moved over to completely Paleo, or even completely Primal (I have some egg issues, so I haven't got rid of all my milk yet). But the last few days it seems that if I have too many carbs after about 7pm, and too many seems to be more than 20, I can't get to sleep. It doesn't feel like I've had caffeine, no jitters, I'm just not sleepy. I thought it might be the hot cider I had one evening, but another night it was just eating latish and dinner had included a lot of salad and an apple for desert.
