I know I've said it before, but the link from food to famished is so clear in my body! I first discovered that if I stop eating sugar (which I originally did just to get away from the obvious addiction and to lose some weight), I didn't wake up in the morning wishing I didn't have to. In fact, I could get up for my workouts happy to do it.
Once I started eating a raw food diet though, the sleep connections were even more dramatic. Not only did I get out of bed easily, but I found I required about 2 less hours of sleep each night AND woke up just minutes before my alarm was set (which is usually somewhere in the 5:00 zone). I call it bouncing out of bed because I feel that alive.
Just got myself eating all raw again and this was my first "welcome back," which is always fun.
