Bulking and sleeping

I recently decided to lay off the booze and sort or my diet and training. I'm not counting cals or anything, but I am getting AT LEAST 4 squares a day, together with whey 2-3 times a day. I've made more progress the last 3 weeks than I had done in the previous 3 months, but I'm sleeping like a bear in winter. Even after 10 hours, I still feel groggy. It's kinda like a hangover. I eat plenty of fruit and veg, and drink about 4 litres of water a day.

Is this normal. I know we grow when we sleep, and my performance has soared in the gym, but I hate the idea of spending over 40% of my life asleep.


Wipe the sand outta yer fanny and get in the f***ing squat rack!

    Eating big meals releases chemicals in your brain that make you tired (I beleive its the same chemical that makes you tired after sex),

    So if your eating loads more im guessing the tiredness will be a knock on effect of your increased eating habits

    Sleep, ****, work, gym, sleep !

    could be a manner of reasons.

    if i was having 10 hours a night i would feel rubbish all day,

    your making good progress in the gym so the extra zzz`s must be helping..
