  • Why does bone broth make me tired?

    For the last week I've been eating lamb bone broth every day, but every time I eat it I feel really tired and need to take a nap. Luckily my office is at home so I can catch 40 winks but still... Last time I was napping was back when I was getting white bread energy crashes.

    I'm actually sleeping pretty well and eating plenty of nutritious food (carbs, fat and protein). Any ideas why bone broth might be making me tired?
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

      No. I eat a lot of lamb though, and dont have any adverse effects.

      Do you think it could be a sign of healing?

          Erratic! Much better when I'm eating starch. It's actually not bad atm.

            I know it's related to digestion somehow because the same thing would happen to me. Now that my digestion's fixed, fat and protein give me an appropriate pep, and carbohydrates set my body on fire, as is appropriate. I wish I could give you a more specific answer, but I honestly don't know.

              That's interesting - do you mean food in general would make you tired, or bone broth specifically?

              How did you fix your digestion? I definitely have problems, which is why I'm going hell for leather on the bone broth atm...

                  Prozac. Probably not helpful for you. Meals of mostly fat and protein would make me tired. A big ass salad required a big ass nap afterward.

                  But something we may have in common is a lack of proper gut flora. I used eat sweet potatoes and pass them essentially undigested. The first day after I started the pill, I tore into a pan of brussel sprouts and ended up shooting them into the toilet later that night. Bear in mind, my digestion was extremely slow before; I would go days without a bowel movement. Now it's running at light speed, so I can see a clear correlation between fiber and digestive problems.

                  I don't know if that would help your lethargy issues, though.

                    Not the answer I was expecting, lol.

                    My broth has potatoes in it! I've eaten it for years, but it's never made me sleepy before...

                      Lol. It's actually the easiest thing in the world. Bones, hot water, boil, then simmer for at least eight hours. Some say 24, but I simmer for shorter and then reuse the bones for a second batch. THere's a good recipe on the PHD page.

                        Bone broth contains gelatin which helps with sleep. Glycine, etc;

                          A little outside the box, but could it be that a warm mug of liquid relaxes you and makes you sleepy? Warm drinks do that to me if they're not caffeinated.

                            I'm a heavy-hot drink user And they don't generally make me sleepy. Weird thing is that I've been drinking bone broth for my whole life (Polish mother) but it's never made me tired before.

                              To make bone broth: get enough bones to cover the bottom of your largest pot. Joint bones are the best and at least one should be included.
                              Roast the bones at 400 deg. for 20-30 min. Scoop out any marrow to eat or spread on meat.
                              Put the bones in the pot and fill with water.
                              Simmer, covered, for 3 days, add water as needed
                              Cool and remove fat from the top.
                              Give the bones to the dogs.
                              Pour the bone broth through cheese cloth into containers to freeze.
                              Spoon into a cup, heat and add salt and pepper.
