Food Testing
PostPosted: Thu 23 Nov, 2006  Reply with quote

K i'm gonna try a different food each night before i go to bed to see what effects they have on dreaming put any suggestions here (foods that are said to help LDing or dream vividness not just any old thing)and I'll post the results:

Test one: 1 Banana

Remembered a relatively long dream pretty well which i don't usually but didn't have any lucidity

Feel free try the experiments yourself and say what happened.

Chocolate

Test 2: Chocolate

I hear a lot that chocolate gives people very vivid dreams and stuff so i tried two kit kats before i went to bed.

Results: no effect, i did wake up twice in the middle of the night and remembered one dream when i woke up, but when i woke up again in the morning i completly forgot anything about the dream, I really should start writing them down but thats too much like effort. Anyway I think i'll try chocolate again some time and actualy focus a bit more on remembering my dreams and becoming lucid etc... but tonight i have no chocolate in my house so i'll try a bowl of cereal.

By the way, to people who have chocolate to improve their dream vividness, what chocolate do you have before bed?

Cereal

Test 3: Cereal

Well i had honey nut cornflakes which have vitamin b6 in them-supposed to help lucid dreams for some reason. And some people says milk helps them to ld and all so i thought this would be the perfect combination maybe...

Results:

Still no LD but did recall a pretty long dream and a couple of shorter ones which is good for me, also it possibly induced weirdness: i had a demented dream about a wolfman and a venusflytrapheadman.

I'm already running out of ideas so please give me some things i can test.

I tried chocolate again n i got some good dream recall but i think all chocolate does is make you wake up in the middle of the night repeatedly.

i have noticed lately that every time i eat corn, i have both increased vividness and turn very often lucid. Hard to say if it is just a placebo, but i am definitely gonna experiment some more with it.

I doubt it will make a difference if you just eat corn coming in a can.

That corn looks kind of disgusting and my mum will think im weird if i randomly ask her to get some corn so i don't think i'll bother with that one, but im interested in whether other people get LDs from eating corn?? Has it got any specific ingredients in it that might induce LDs?

which have vitamin b6 in them-supposed to help lucid dreams for some reason

"Vitamin B6 plays an important role in protein metabolism, and in the sythesis of hemoglobin, serotonin, and aminobutric acid. The latter two compounds may be important chemicals in the metabolism of the brain."

I feel like a nerd

I tried chocolate yet again and i had a dream about my teeth decaying and my two front ones crumbling out of my mouth, i was so relieved when i woke up and had my teeth. Maybe it was a sign that i should stop eating chocolate before i go to bed?

Does anyone know some more foods that have vitamin b6 in them?
