Hello Insomnia, My Old Friend

Hello Insomnia, My Old Friend

The first time that I realized that harm that sugar was doing to my bed, was the night I quit.

It was the first day, that I can remember that I went without sweets.  No added or refined sugars.

I couldn’t sleep.

I woke up multiple times at night and in the morning, I wasn’t tired.

I wasn’t Tired?

I spent the last years of my life living with tired.  I’d fall asleep at work and be miserable when I couldn’t.

It had gotten so bad that my wife asked me to set up an appointment with a doctor, to see if I had mono.

My Friends knew me as “The Sleepy Guy”

I would have to, on vacations, schedule and calendar time to be in the hotel sleeping.

It was all so lame and embarrassing.

So, One day I quit eat or drinking Sugar

Just to try it out.

I become an insomniac.  My energy levels IMMEDIATELY went through the roof.

Now, I had a Bad Sugar Weekend.  With Halloween and Everything.

So, This week I got off sugar again.

And last night I couldn’t sleep, didn’t want to.  And today I am wide eyed and energetic.

This redditor had a similar experience:


Took 31 days for my sleep to finally start regulating…a bit… from r/sugarfree
