Hack my weirdish changes after becoming paleo?

Along with the million fantastic changes I've had after going paleo There are a few... not bad.. but a few odd changes aswell

After going paleo I now become constipated after eating any form of dairy, whether its in forms of cheese ( same thing happens with goats or sheeps milk cheese ), yogourt or even as an ingredient in chocolate ( if I cheat on a special occasion ) I am lactose intolerant but back on the S.A.D I could still eat things such as cheese and natural yogourt without having this issue.

Also, I have difficulty sleeping in past 8:30-9am max and no matter what the situation my body always wants to go to sleep at about 9pm and I get tired around half an hour before. ( Grok's sunrise, sunset pattern? :S ) This works perfectly when I go to school because I can wake up at about 6 with no alarm and spend lots of time making breakfast etc.

And this can't exactly be concidered a change but I seem to thrive on a low carb paleo diet of about 50g per day.

Thanks in advance =)

Do you take a probiotic?

I make home-made yogurt and I don't have a problem with constipation; if yours has any additives that might explain your problem (I am also unable to handle milk but the yogurt is fine.)

I have exactly the same sleep pattern as you're experiencing. I get tired at night but when I walke up in the morning I am SO awake I have to get up. I used to be able to laze in bed for a while and even drowse sometimes but not now.

I eat moderate carbs, 60-100g, so these changes might be more about protein/fat than carbs.

Two other things I've noticed that you didn't mention are that my pulse is slower now and my walking pace is faster.

I went through almost the exact same things.

Crazy increase in sensitivity to dairy and gluten and a literal inability to wake up at any time other than 7:00am, even if I got drunk and went to bed at 5am the night before.

It just is what it is.

I've noticed with my daughter that when she has wheat & dairy she gets constipated. Wheat on it's own will give her fairly loose stools & milk/some dairy will constipated her...

So, wheat & dairy cancel each other out eating SWD, but alone affect her!
