    I'm sorry you're not sleeping well. I haven't personally experienced any loss of sleep, so I don't know how to advise... Linda?
    Here is something Dr. Simeons says about sleep:

    "Occasionally we allow a sleeping tablet or a tranquilizer, but patients should be told that
    while under treatment they need and may get less sleep. For instance, here in Italy where
    it is customary to sleep during the siesta which lasts from one to four in the afternoon
    most patients find that though they lie down they are unable to sleep."

    First off, it is common to not need as much sleep on protocol as you normally do. However, caffeine might be causing this. Make sure no coffee, green tea, etc after 3pm. Try a cup of Chamomille tea before bedtime as it helps to relax you.

    I will have to try the Chamomile Tea. Yes I am very sensitive to caffeine so I know not to drink any after 12 noon. Thanks Linda!!

    It is recommended that you walk an hour a day. Not any marathon thing, just easy walking. Someone just posted on another forum that if you walk an hour/day you lose more inches overall than if you don't (even if the losses on the scale are equal). I'm waiting for her to get back to me with a citation or link for that study.

    Amy, please do not do anything heavy as far as working out in P2. You would think it would help boost your losses, but it can actually slow them down or stall. The body will go into starvation mode if you exercise too much and some people have actually passed out or felt like they were going to pass out. Light walking and yoga is all that is recommended in P2. As far as insomnia, I actually slept really well while on drops, though I did have a bit less energy than normal.

    Nancy said it best above. I actually know someone who ignored my warning and wound up in urgent care so please keep it simple.
