View Full Version : Sleep requirements
Yesterday I was about 95% raw for the first time in a veeery long time. Anyway I just woke up after 5 and a half hours of sleep feeling completely fine. Yay!
Would you share with me your experiences in changed sleep requirements since going raw? :)

Last one to bed. First one up. Sometimes I wish I could sleep like I used to.

Hey Cathy, that's me too!
But only becasue I need to. Weekends I'm the LAST one up!
I need less sleep now I'm raw, I can function on 5 hours sleep a night, I'd rather more (Im such a bed freak) but do fine on this.
I also get less of a heavy feeling if I'm tired too, in fact, I don't thnk I've acually experienced that heavy 'body' feeling of tired since going 100%, only the irritable mind tired that makes me realise I need sleep.

interesting. i havent timed myself. i know when i was on a normal diet i used to sleep 10 - 12 hours a day.
when i was on steroids i used to sleep even more. one time slept for 20 hours straight ( no drugs or alcohol were involved ... except steroids )
primates sleep 10 hours a day. humans also need 10 hours of sleep a day but since that isn't practical with a modern lifestyle that is designed to kill people the medical literature has been revised to suggest that 7 hours a day is enough.
i think i sleep a perfect 10 hours lately.

Usually between 5 and 7 a night. It's 2 a.m. Gotten 5 hours so far last night. Might go back and cuddle with Himself for a couple hours later ~ might not. I don't concern myself with how much sleep I get. I'm tired, I sleep; if not, I enjoy my lovely day! :D

So far I've found I need more sleep than before, but maybe I'm still detoxing.

Interesting - I remember last year - I used to only need about 5-6 hours & felt amazing...lately...I've been about 35 days all raw that I could sleep ALL the time, I've been getting some killer sharp headaches too, I figure I must be detoxing & my body is just trying to heal up. I love raw : ) The detoxing isn't even bad because I know what's on the other end - so worth it!
