Our expert says:
If you have a very low fat diet, you will be breaking down the fats in your body for energy purposes. One of the products of that breakdown is a substance which is highly stimulating, and will keep you awake.
If you develop symptoms of Vitamin B deficiency after 2 weeks of not taking supplements, it means that your basic diet is deficient in vitamin B. Lack of vitamin B affects nerve function, and gives a restlessness which will often keep people awake.
The moral of the story: we have been through millions of years of evolution, and are designed by it to require a balanced diet. Extreme diets of any shape or form are not good for us. "In all things moderation".
