    You mention low carb snacks before bed, what kind of snack do you have if you don't mind me asking? I've noticed for weeks now like clock work I wake up after 2 hours of sleep, wondered if snack before bed would stop this liver dump which I'm sure I get. Thanks have good healthy day

    @oldman1954 it could be a bit of dehydration or lack of sodium?

    Will have a look @doolallylady. To tag type @ immediately followed by their username, no spaces. Look at how I tagged you?
