      Ketogenic Diet & Lucidity

      I've been doing a bit of research, since I've been keto now for a few weeks. I've noticed these past weeks that my dreams have gotten very vivid, and excellent recall (although no lucidity yet outside of a few seconds).

      I was reading about acetylcholine inhibitors (Galantamine and Huperzine-A), and how they work. Then I learned about how essential choline is to dreaming. So, naturally, that lead to foods containing choline. Some foods include meat, fish, eggs, dairy, broccoli and brussel sprouts, and peanuts. ALL of these foods are keto-friendly, and are frequently consumed on this diet.

      What are your thoughts on the relationship between dream recall, vividness, and lucidity, and the ketogenic diet?

      I've never personally undergone a ketogenic diet, or delve deep into the correlations of food and dream quality, so I have no information of value to give you I'm afraid. I'm pretty sure I've heard though that eating a heavy meal before bed gives you an increase in dream vividness as well and is a possible cause of nightmares. That I've done before as almost everyone else in their life I suppose, though with mixed results. I know it's not entirely the same as undergoing a diet but, I'm curious, does your change in vividness also changes the types of dreams that you get? Also might want to check the time you consume these foods and how the affect your dreams.

      Yeah, I don't eat close to bedtime usually. That's another interesting concept, though. I had a dream once where one of my guides told me if I wanted to project out of body more often, I needed to eat lighter foods - and the dream showed me watermelon slices. *Shrug*


      It's my opinion that the vividness itself isn't going to change a dream to a nightmare. Either you're noticing the nightmare more because they're vivid, or, your higher self wants you to see some issue in your life, and they're using that increased vividness to make a strong point (nightmare). Of course, I also think all nightmares are related to waking life issues / shadow self issues.

      I don't usually get very many nightmares, regardless of vividness. At least not anymore. I don't think it applies unless you have some critical waking life issue / fear to work out.
