Quoted from VictoriaYes, this is very BIG!! Congratulations on this big success and I'd say you're reaping the benefits of feeding your body what it needs in order to thrive. I've also experienced this sleep benefit. It's wonderful to actually be able to go to bed, drop off to sleep and wake up when the sky gets light!
Quoted from 14428I just want to say that I've been following the BTD/GTD for a couple of weeks now and...THIS IS BIG....I am sleeping mostly through the night...that's a big WOW because that's not normal for me. If it were just a day I wouldn't attribute it to the diet but it's been a week now, at least. I didn't expect it so I didn't document when it started...I wake up early but I'm getting my 7-8 hours and I have energy to go through the day. I still get fatigued but not to the point where I feel like I need a nap...I think I'm in love...haha...:)
I'll never forget the words Dr D said in his interview with Dr Oz......that's it's not enough to take away the bad foods, (which for me was gluten and soy, maybe dairy) but you have to give them the good foods to eat...that's not a direct quote, but anyway as Oprah say's that was a WOW moment for me. It explained why just removing a bad food didn't necessarily heal the body...while it stopped the damage the good foods come along and assist the healing, that's what I get out of that anyway...just wanted to share my good news. I am delighted....(clap)

Congrats to you! I can resonate with this feeling. I am done with additives and preservatives which were the last VICES on my path in the btd. This week has been a little tough with being tired without the added artificial sweeteners sporadically throughou the day, however, I am feeling better than ever... and I love my sleep:)
Quoted from TJI noticed improvements in my sleep when I started also! I still have some problems, but it's much better on the whole.
Quoted from FreyjaGlad to hear you are doing so well. I've been on a diet for about a month now. I noticed the greatest improvement after 2 weeks I felt alot more energy, no feeling of having a brick on my stomach and all in all my mood improved and I lost a lot of weight. So after that I quickly decided this was the thing for me and I wanted to go on Swomi to get the most out of it. :)
I never had any problems with sleeping unless I ate large amounts of food in the middle of the night but I knew this was not good for me. Otherway I always slept well. I need my 6-8 hours of sleep and if I get it I am ok. But I am glad that improved for you too.
Good luck! :)
