Getting Better Sleep — Cool, Dark, And Lots Of B6, Carbs, Calories, And Fat

recently posted some sleeping tips. A lot of other great bloggers write about sleep too, like Mark Sisson, Robb Wolf, and Stephan Guyenet. I think sleep is really important, and I’ve had a lot of sleeping problems in the past, some of which I still occasionally struggle with, so I’m going to follow suit and post the things that have helped me most. Over a number of years, I’ve found that many things impact my ability to sleep, but from among these I can distill a handful of things I’ve found most critical: A cool, dark room. Light and phsyical activity upon waking. Lots of carbs, calories, and fat. Sufficient B6-rich foods. I need to have close to total darkness in the room when I fall asleep, and a sleep mask helps to prevent any residual light from reaching my eyes. A sleep mask does almost nothing if there’s lots of light in the room, as light on the skin seems to have a lesser effect than light on the eyes, but a nevertheless very meaningful impact. As my sleep has improved over the last two years, I’ve become less sensitive to light, perhaps because better sleep itself has begun normalizing my metabolic disturbances. But by “less sensitive” I mean that I can to Continue reading >>

    I've been only 2 days doing keto and I already sleep better.... is it common? do you guys experience better sleep thanks to keto?

    For sure. I sleep deeper and wake up more resred. I feel better going on 6-7 hours now than I did on 8+ pre-keto.

    Well, I'll break up the keto circle and say that it is just you. You are just on Day 2. Most people report disturbed sleep after the first few days and then only experience the deep sleep reported below after full adaptation and about 7-12 weeks. Keto is good, but it isn't magic.

A powerful tool for helping insomnia, a combination of Binaural Beats for Delta Waves and the 852 hz Ancient Solfeggio Frequency. This frequency will balance your Third Eye Chakra while inducing deep states of relaxation. The binaural beat will stimulate a deep sleep state. Binaural beats, or binaural tones, are auditory processing artifacts, or apparent sounds, caused by specific physical stimuli. This effect was discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove and earned greater public awareness in the late 20th century based on claims coming from the alternative medicine community that binaural beats could help induce relaxation, meditation, creativity and other desirable mental states. Binaural beats reportedly influence the brain in more subtle ways through the entrainment of brainwaves and provide other health benefits such as control over pain. Binaural beats may influence functions of the brain in ways besides those related to hearing. This phenomenon is called "frequency following response". The concept is that if one receives a stimulus with a frequency in the range of brain waves, the predominant brainwave frequency is said to be likely to move towards the frequency of the st

So, Apparently I Don't Sleep Anymore ...

I am in Ketosis (checked with Ketostix). For the past two and a half weeks, I haven't really been sleeping. I probably REM cycle a whopping 5 hours every night, sometimes 4, and occasionally 6-7. When I wake up I still feel a bit tired, but I'm 'awake' if that makes sense ... I have read that people on Ketosis sleep less but I'm a bit apprehensive about this dramatic change (I usually/use to sleep 8-9 hours a night). Other info: Not hungry. I don't eat nearly as much. For instance, yesterday I ate 2 eggs, 1/2 cup ground beef, 2 small round steaks (the thin tenderized kind, probably about .4 lb total ... maybe less), and 1/8 of an avocado. 20 pounds to lose? Don't have a scale ... haven't checked in a year ... I lift weights, moderately, 3-4 times a week. I run-walk every other day. (Note: I am not giving up running. I do not care if cardio isn't all that great. I love to run. I will continue to do so.) I drink Kombucha everyday (home brew). Vitamin D supplement Natural Calm supplement 2 weeks sober from coffee ... :p My job requires me to stand most of the day (M-F) and go up and down scaffolds, thus, quite active. That's all I can think of to add ... So, my question: What the heck Continue reading >>

    How much sleep do you get on keto?

    Before starting keto, I slept around 8-9 hours a night. I've been doing a keto diet for about 2 months now, with the following results:
    --way more energy throughout the day
    --having to eat less
    --improved physical stamina
    --better mental clarity
    --only need about 5-6 hours of sleep per night
    The last one is what I'm researching right now.
    So for those on keto right now, how's your sleep schedule compared to non-keto?

  2. alexwynveen

    I tend to get 5-6 hours, except on the weekends where I drug myself with sleep aids to force myself to get ~8. I don't really choose to sleep so little, but as soon as I hit those times my body is all like "GET THE HELL UP" and I cant get back to bed (usually happens at 4:30am, so I eat and lift at 6). I would say that my sleeping hasn't really had much of a change on my sleep, but I definitely wouldn't need to sleep as much as before, due to the stability of energy I have. I never really go to bed "beat".

    Keto hasn't affected my sleep, it's the same as it is on a non-keto diet.

Sleep Nutrition

Carbohydrates and Sleep Growth hormone and insulin have antagonistic effects: Elevated growth hormone levels will reduce insulin’s effectiveness, and high insulin levels will suppress the secretion of growth hormone. Therefore, repeatedly eating carbohydrate-rich food immediately before going to sleep may impair growth hormone secretion during your deep-sleep phase. Additionally, your body is more resistant to the effects of insulin at night, meaning that you must produce more insulin to move a given amount of glucose to your body tissues. This may lead to even further suppression of growth hormone secretion. Growth hormone secretion is an important part of the process of SWS, therefore going to bed with elevated or rising insulin will reduce the effectiveness of SWS that night. It is important to go to bed with low blood sugar so that you can maximize your growth hormone secretion potential and Slow Wave Sleep quality. Originally, there was a number of papers showing insulin increasing deep sleep, for example here and here. The obvious statement, then, is that if carbohydrates increase insulin then naturally carbohydrates increase deep sleep. This is a prime example of an ‘aff Continue reading >>

    So the last few days I have been sleeping really well. Barely got up, was able to sleep in the morning which is something I have always done, I am a night person and I like it that way. However, while I was not cheating, between all the supplements I have been taking for some aches and pains and the extra nuts I have been snacking on I suspected I was not in ketosis. Yesterday I skipped lunch unintentionally and started what is now a 40 hour fast. Last night my sleep went back to how it is on keto/fasting. I woke up several times to use the facilities and this morning woke up an hour earlier than usual and could not go back to sleep (no matter how much I wanted to). I do not feel refreshed but I do feel alert. On the flip side I usually fall asleep earlier than usual with keto.

    I have always had a bit of a delayed circadian issue but I like it and am used to it. When on keto it seems to fix it? Is that possible?

  2. David_Driver

    I am going to have to give up on Keto. I have had insomnia for almost a year and I discovered that when I cheat I sleep all night. This week I have bumped up the carbs significantly and I have slept all the way through every night. If you google low carb and insomnia you will find that it is fairly common.

  3. Loulou

    Perhaps that is why my insomnia has been so bad recently. Only slept 4 hours last night. However, if I eat more than 20 grams carbs I immediately put on 1 or 2 lbs over night which is a no no for me,
