    I had such serious sleep difficulties for most of my life, and now I'm finding on a high fruit diet I sleep really well! Optimal sleep happens for me after 300gs carbs. Total calories plays a role, but no matter how much I ate on HFLC, my sleep was shit.

    It has been a my whole life kind of thing too, even as a toddler. Not taking hours to fall asleep is a huge improvement in recent years, but I'd like to sleep the whole night.

    I took magnesium last night because I'd only taken 400 mg during the day. I woke up around when my alarm usually goes off but otherwise slept well!

    I am probably breaking my gluten-free streak today for some fast food on the road. We're just killing some time now until we leave for the lake house. It's raining now, but hopefully will be clearing up later. Should be fairly hot tomorrow & sunday!

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    I do to but during the day. I guess I have average sleep, not great but nothing to really lose... Sleep over... Oh god. Anyway, after going moderate carb I have more energy and no swings so I can stay awake during the day easily but sometimes my body/mind won't shut up at night.

    Hope the weather clears up for a nice weekend
    Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

    Isn't it interesting that so many of these symptoms correlate? insomnia, gut issues, depression, anxiety... I have all these issues as well.

    Have you ever tried charcoal for your gut issues? I need to start sorting mine out...

    Gut issues = serotonin = cause of most of those issues, if you really think about it. However, it's not the only, as I have a pretty iron stomach and digestive system, and still have mild insomnia and anxiety. I think there are too many neurotransmitors to really narrow down a lot of symptoms, just some are pretty self-explanatory when related to the gut and where most serotonin is located.

    Yeah, I hear you. There's too much of a physiological dance going on to ever really know what's causing what. I'm pretty sure now that my depression was mostly due to high oestrogen, but my gut has been really inflamed for the last two days, UGH. Getting sick of it.

    I'm quite ignorant about the serotonin-gut link tbh. I don't really understand it. Has Peat written anything on it? Actually, I have loads of questions for you! maybe I'll take it over to my journal instead of clogging up Tashas

    Inflammation is a huge thing with my gut, I'm realizing. I think serotonin gets affected as a result or as part of it all. Activated charcoal is part of a recent "gut issue" recommended supplement protocol I've been looking into, but I haven't used it since constipation was my primary symptom. Now...it might be helpful in low doses, but unsure. May be able to afford some new things next month.

    I haven't taken any 5-HTP or Tyrosine for the past two days and I feel good mood-wise, but this was an unusual weekend. A GOOD weekend. I had a blast and got pretty sunburned (poor Hulky is much worse off). We are taking turns slathering each other in chilled aloe vera gel.

    I slept really well this weekend with just the Theanine Serene. Vivid dreams, but not scary.

    Maybe I'll do more of a recap of the weekend tomorrow, when I'm inevitably bored at work. Hulky is encouraging me to browse around for something new, which is scary, but exciting. I'd like to not be bored.

    Gut: my gut is switching around between C and D lately. Travel on Friday REALLY messed me up. We were in the car for at least 5 hours. By the time we got to the lake house, I had really bad lower abdominal cramps. It took a while for anything to come of that. My BM has moved to the evening and has been loose.

    No idea what we're eating tonight. I think we're ordering out. I need to get some more unscented lotion but I'm tired of driving!
