At least you woke up before reaching the fridge :)

I had problems sleeping the first 2 weeks of the diet and did read that it is because your body fuel is very low - the brain starts working overtime to make up (you do infact burn quite a lot of calories when you are sleeping as it is when the body goes into repair mode - creating new cells etc) Dont worry - it will pass, infact, I think i sleep too much now!!

I'm on LL, and definately don't sleep anywhere near as much as I used to. Going to bed around 12.30-1am, getting up at 6.30am for work and feeling like I have more than enough each night.

You will find a more regular pattern, at first your body has to adjust to it;s new state and this can just take a little bit of time :)

I'm sure it's normal lol

When I first started CD I couldn't sleep, and when I did it was very broken with weird dreams.

I always dreamt about food, the amount of Cooked Roast Dinners i'd eaten in my sleep was mad - always relieved that I hadn't actually eaten it tho.. phew :)

Yes, I have weird dreams, usually about food! I never need as much sleep when i'm on CD, wide awake til the wee small hours, then up early feeling refreshed. Think it's cos we're not eating carbs which make you feel tired and sluggish.
