Definitely TMI, but I am bipolar, and discovered long far ago I could stir up a hypomanic state by fasting and/or sleep deprivation...comes in handy still when I'm planning a long roadtrip or over-book myself at work, though i usually pay dearly for it with a mental and physical crash. That said, I can feel the wheels start to turn towards the end of a 36 hour DD, sometimes i get downright giddy and silly

Poor bullied mice!
Makes sense that our ancestors wouldn't have felt much like going out hunting if they were feeling depressed! Also explains why many JBs feel more focused on DDs.
Granny, that's certainly a cheap way to get high.

Interesting article. Thanks for sharing.

I wonder if this is why I sometimes have difficulty with insomnia after a DD--

There's a lot of speculation about that in some forums and also research circles. It's thought that some women undergoing caloric restriction (voluntary or not) become hyper-aware and although that can sharpen mental focus it can also make it difficult to sleep.

Stefani Ruper of Paelo for Women wrote a blog post that argued that intermittent fasting doesn't suit some women.
Quote:
I have a specific interest in intermittent fasting because of what I have witnessed in women in the PfW community. Many women find that with intermittent fasting comes sleeplessness, anxiety, and irregular periods, among a myriad of other symptoms hormone dysregulations. I have also personally experienced metabolic distress as a result of fasting, which is evidenced by my interest in hypocretin neurons. Hypocretin neurons have the ability to incite energetic wakefulness, and to prevent a person from falling asleep, should his body detect a “starved” state. Hypocretin neurons are one way in which intermittent fasting may dysregulate a woman’s system.
It's unfortunate that she misinterpreted some of the research upon which she relied because it was addressing a widespread issue but it's important to get these things right if you use the title: Shattering the Myth of Fasting for Women: A Review of Female-Specific Responses to Fasting in the Literature.

ETA: I think it's unfortunate because I do think this is a genuine issue that deserves more attention.

I have that problem, too, but despite that, I still wake up refreshed.
