Can't sleep


#1

Has anyone else experienced any interruption with sleep?

I’ve noticed a couple of posts claiming lethargy, I’m currently struggling to get to sleep. This has never been an issue for me, usually hit the pillow and I’m out.

I’ve been exclusively using Huel (with the exception of the odd date and nut). I’ve considered the possibility that energy cost for digestion has been drastically reduced on a mainly liquid diet, so perhaps less sleep is needed?

Any other thoughts, experiences or feedback would be appreciated.

I found that I needed less sleep, had more energy etc - however this may also have been due to the weight loss I achieved on Huel or the fact I now do Yoga daily. Hard to tell, sleep is not only effected by what you eat but what is going on in your life, work and personal relationships. For me stress is my biggest sleep killer, once my mind begins to spiral I can spend the whole night just thinking (almost all drivel)

I’ve always had a hard time to go to sleep and haven’t really noticed much difference, however I juse do huel for lunch… but I’ve had a harder time to actually go to bed, that is I’m more restless befor I go to bed. On the other hand this can likewise be to all the medication I get for my MS :stuck_out_tongue:

But I like you’re theory about less energy consumption for digestion, would be cool if someone could confirm it.

I know this is an old post, but I’ve got similar issues

I would say I’m a 90-95% Huel diet now (with additional whey protein) for the past 3 weeks and I’ve noticed I’m waking up earlier and earlier. I have no issues falling asleep at all, but I’m now waking up at around 03:00-04:30 and sometimes earlier. Last meal of the day is 19:30 which is 3 scoops of unsweetened.

Before I could go to bed at 21:00 and not wake up until 06:00-06:30 (without alarm)

Literally going through the exact same thing and it’s driving me nuts!
