    Anything i can take to help me sleep? I have problems sleeping anyway. Along time before i started the diet. But this week hubby has to get up at 3 as he needs to be in the office at 5. So i'm getting even less sleep then my 5 "normal" hours.

    Nearly keeled over in WHSmiths yesterday. Felt really ill, hot, blurred vision.

    Still not 100% today, still feel tired. Had just restarted as well as i had a bad month with a lot of emotional stress.

    So anything i can take that won't interfere with the ketosis just to boost my sleeping hrs up?

    I used to have a lot of problems sleeping and averaged about 4 hours a night. Now I am sleeping much better. I still only average about 5.5 hrs but I manage ok with that amount of sleep.

    I assume you will have already tried all the usual things like warm drink before bed, lavender in bedroom (I have a room spray), not doing things that make your brain too active before you try to sleep etc? The other thing I have done which has made a difference is invested in some really good quality pillows and a decent bed! I had a really old lumpy bed and some cheap pillows and once I bought better ones my sleep changed. It could well be all in the mind but who cares, it worked :)

    That's all fairly basic stuff that you will probably have tried but I thought I'd mention it just in case. I hope you find a solution soon as lack of sleep is horrible. Good luck.
