I read this thread with interest yesterday. I don't sleep brilliantly although taking a magnesium supplement has certainly helped. I do follow a low carb diet & noticed that a small glass of warm milk could help me get back to sleep when I got tired of tossing & turning. So I figured it could be a ketosis - glycogen - blood sugar issue. I tried a spoon of honey in a glass of warm water last night about an hour before bed & slept from 11pm to the alarm at 6.45am. Now I know it was a one-night experiment - but it worked!
I've slept good two nights in a row. One thing I noticed is that after having a salad with almonds and black olives for lunch, my heart rate dropped and I felt much more relaxed. Don't know if the fats helped, but I'm going to keep experimenting until I find some answers.
Second night with a spoon of honey before bed. Second good night's sleep!
