  When the Z's you so desperately crave elude you, you pay a price far beyond the in-the-moment frustration of counting sheep, ruminating over the day's events and experiencing counterproductive mind-racing thoughts about how useless you'll be tomorrow unless you can fall asleep. The reality is, you probably will be somewhat useless (and irritable) tomorrow if you don't get enough sleep. If you suffer from insomnia, you're not alone.

It is well known that whole foods should be emphasized over dietary supplements because essential vitamins and minerals found in foods are usually better absorbed than those found in supplements (Lichtenstein, 2005). By nature, the ketogenic diet is best comprised mostly of whole, unprocessed foods that meet most of, if not all your nutritional needs.
