Prior to starting keto, I required 8-9 hours of sleep each night, in which I had to take sleep aids in order to fall asleep and stay asleep. I also had a difficult time waking up and getting up in the mornings.
Now 6 weeks in to keto WOE, I find that I am only sleeping 6 hours each night. If I go to bed at 9:30, I wake up at 3:30 am and cannot fall back asleep.
Because I typically work out every day, I have a difficult time staying awake past 9:30, but I do not like waking up at 3:30 as its too dark outside and feels like an awkward time to get up.
My question is - Is 6 hours of sleep enough each night? To me and based on my prior sleep requirements it seems like too little sleep. How has keto altered your sleep requirements. Please weigh in.
