Last week I was on vacation and pigged out on gluten, like a LOT of gluten. Beer, pizza, baked goods, batter-fried food, you name it. I felt icky the first day and fine the rest of the time, but by the time I got back home, I was dealing with the worst cystic acne breakout of my life (I never get cystic acne; when I do break out, which is otherwise pretty rare, it's all little whiteheads that are easy to deal with/heal). My jaw and neck are still covered in the spots. No more gluten EVER for this girl (or okay, in small infrequent amounts it's fine, but definitely no more gluten free-for-alls).
If I'm going to choose to "cheat", it had better be something damn well worth it! I usually end up feeling horrid for about a week afterwards, so unless it's some kind of 'amazing food' or one of the rare occasions where I am in a group setting and decide to go with the flow it's a nogo...
Best thing about Primal/Paleo? I get to eat the foods I used to "cheat" with every day now! Makes giving up sweets and processed garbage easy
Eat like a Beast, feel like a Beast!
Eat from a huge bag of processed junk... Well... You know.
