Diet and Snoring

My husband has seen the results that the Paleo diet has done for me, and with a little convincing has decided to go along with and try the diet also. It was easy at first with suppers. A little harder with lunches, although that has come a long way during the past month.

He has always snored. There are hilarious snoring stories from his family and there have been times that I've been snored right to the couch. He doesn't drink fluid milk, but usually substitutes a rice beverage. I've often thought he was lactose intolerant but keeping him out of the ice cream is nearly impossible. He gets terrible sinus infections and the dairy just seems to make things worse. Ice cream means snoring is certain. I've thought about banishing it from the house, but somehow...

To make a long story a little shorter, after driving our girls to their bus for an away soccer game, I stopped by the ice cream shop and got each of us one of the blizzard treats (my first really big cheat in about 5 months-bad and not fair right?) I knew for certain he wouldn't refuse and he'd be snoring me right out of bed. The amazing thing was, he didn't. In fact, the past couple weeks I've noticed that he is very quiet. I usually fall asleep after him and wake up before he does. Very little snoring and most of the time none. I sleep deeper now too, but it's a rare night that I don't hear some snoring.

I'm wondering if it was the wheat all along and not the dairy. He's only lost a few pounds and with his history, I doubt the weight loss is the big difference. His mom was long in suffering with IBS, GERD, and now has Parkinson's and severe dementia. She's become a feather of a woman. She also thought she was lactose intolerant but it never helped her to avoid dairy.

I've even thought he should be checked for sleep apnea because sometimes it seems like he can't get air in and out. He insists he's okay. If the diet works, I'll keep encouraging that. Any thoughts? Anyone else cure their snoring? Why would it seem to be the dairy if perhaps it wasn't?

So tie him up to drag him there?

Loud snorers should *always* be screened to rule out sleep apnea, dairy or no dairy.
