When I first started the primal/paleo diet I felt like crap for about 1 week and then I felt amazing. I found I was needing even less sleep for a while - couldn't nap anymore and provided I got about 7 hours of sleep, I felt great! (prior to that I was sleeping 8ish hours with naps on occassion).
And then slowly I found myself needing more and more sleep - to the point that last night I slept 14 hours and then still took a nap .... And now its 7pm and I feel like I could go to bed if I let myself.
Is this a low carb side effect? Am I having physical symptoms of depression perhaps? (My mood is generlaly been fine, I do take prozac)?
In the last year I had my thyroid tested and that was fine. I also had insulin resistance that seemed to be cured by low carbing/natural eating.
What could this be? I made an appointment to see my doctor - but don't want to live like this and am trying to figure this out in the meantime.
