      Different Foods = Different Lucid Dreams?

      Hey I just recently started experiencing lucid dreams in the last 6 months and I've noticed that it only happens if I deprave myself of sleep for more than 24 hours and that the type of dreams vary according to what I eat most of before I go to sleep, for example I once tried to stay up for as long as I could doing work for university and my diet for around 12 hours consisted of mainly carrots and coffee, this combination (on my first lucid dream) caused me to have a dream of being in Berlin (although everyone strangely enough spoke french) and there were gangs of men with long orange hair split in a middle parting chasing me on Vespa scooters. Each of these men had full beards which were the same colour as their Vespa scooter's. The thing is that the scooters never got close enough to me to touch me, the faster I ran, the faster they came at me. If I stopped the scooters would move towards me but they didn't seem to get any closer to me . The streets were derserted with the exception of these gangs, and buildings were mainly rectangular or square shapes made from what seemed to be white plastic and glass. I woke up feeling exausted as though I had recieved no sleep at all. Then again in an attempt to get some work done I stayed awake for as long as I could eating plain greek yoghurt and drinkin coffee, this time the lucid dream I was on a plant which I was able to see all of, that's to say I could see where the planet ended and myself there, don't ask me how because it was huge and I dont understand completely myself. It was made of what I can most closely describe as fine snow, although it was completly dry and not cold, I did have the feeling of being underwater (I was able to submerge myself in it) and when I went below the surface I could see the plant was inhabited by blue creatures with pointy noses and ears with long fin like limbs on their upper body which had arms appearing below mid-way. I found myself in a café-type building where these creatures had a live band playing instruments all of the exact same biege colour. I had some of this planet's currency in my pocket which was a very shiny silver series of coins in varying size and when i lifted them out I could physically feel them in my hand (they slid about my had as though there were next to no friction laws applied to them) I bought some sort of peanut smoothie and I was even able to smell and taste it! however when I sucked it through the straw I felt my throat clogging up and woke up, really quite disturbed and frightened. Can anyone tell me if these dreams have a meaning behind them and why I am only able to lucid dream nightmarish situations and when I am depraved of sleep? Thanks.

      I find it interesting that you attribute the dreams to food and not what you were studying or anything else. It tells me that there is likely something already in mind for you that it might cause certain dreams or dreaming in general. However, with that, foods all have different affects on your body and can change the amount of serotonin, melatonin, etc. which all interact with your sleep cycle. Truly, every food has a different effect, but it's not black and white - we all have different tastes and different reactions to foods. Though, it is often the case that someone who really has to pee will often dream about water. Slightly related.

      Back to your dream, I can see the relation of the carrots with the hair, but the rest must come from somewhere else. It is likely the case that other parts of your day were all combined into this dream, including the food.

      Each of these men had full beards which were the same colour as their Vespa scooter's. The thing is that the scooters never got close enough to me to touch me, the faster I ran, the faster they came at me.

      It's hard to really delve into the details of your dream content as it is manifesting more than just food. Nightmares is likely the combination of several stress factors including pressures of powers you cannot control or be prepared for. Also, there is some obvious symbolism of denigrating your freedom to express yourself. Or, at least, apprehension.

      Aside from food, what other factors in life do you feel are stressors..?
