  • can't fall asleep since starting Paleo

    Hello,

    I have recently started eating Palo (very limited dairy--zero processed/wheat/corn)
    I gave up pop (soda) about 6weeks ago...but still really craving my 3pm coke... and not seeing any of the expected weight loss (was drinking 4 to5 per day)

    Is there a reason why I might not be able to fall asleep? I could be a walk on for one of the zombie shows out there right now...

    The cravings are probably a sign that you are missing *something*. The question is what.

    Sounds like a mineral deficiency to me. Do you get enough salt / magnesium?

        I never used to salt at all pre-primal, but now I salt basically everything except fruit, dark chocolate and bacon.

        Pink salt is the best, since it contains a bunch of other things rather than just NaCl (with a tiny dash of I) that the standard white salt has.

          I had that at first too. Turns out I had to exercise or I am not tired enough to sleep. + Natural Calm on the really wired days.
