  • Puffy Face from eating Desert??

    Last night, I had a cheat meal and ate a piece of lemon cake. This morning I woke up with a puffy face and feel like a drank last night. I also have glassy eyes.

    I have been eating Primal for about 6 months now and occasionaly will have wheat/pasta/cake and it does make me sick. And when I do have pizza, I would have a gluten free crust.
    I havent really experienced the puffy face before. this is the worst reaction I have had since I went Primal.

    Do you think its from the cake? and that I could be allergic to wheat?

    Wanted to see if anyone else had similar symptons after being primal and then cheating with desert (cake).

    thanks!

    I know before primal, my eyelids had become swollen especially in the am. After a couple weeks primal the eyelids were normal, unless I cheat for a day or two..right back to swollen. Also, for years I suffered from a red nose, similar to that of a drunk, after dropping wheat and gluten for about two weeks I realized my nose was no longer red.

      You get sick eating wheat - enough said.
      Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                  It's dessert. Two Ss because you want seconds. Eating the desert will of course make your face puffy. Those cactus spines are going to hurt.

                    The way I was told to remember which spelling is which was this: One s is for sand, Two ss is for strawberry shortcake.

                    And yes, carb hangovers are real and not worth it.

                      Back in grade school it was "You might want dessert twice, but only once deserted in the desert."

                        I never needed a trick because I'm lucky to be a spelling savant. But I suck at math. And yes, my sister and I used to wake up with giant foreheads wondering what caused it. Definitely puffiness from bad food. Wheat + salt + water = human water balloon.

                          Anyone know what the effect on the eyes represents?

                          When I eat carbs, lately seems like any carb like breads, pastas anything processed, the next morning and all day after my eyesight will be affected. That glassy feeling and it's very hard to focus

                          Why does that happen? Anyone know?

                          I get other symptoms like bloat gas indigestion

                          But this eye issue is new for me

                          You would think I would learn not to eat these things

                          Can anyone explain this to me? The science behind it

                            I don't know about you, but it sounds more like an allergy to something in the food to me. I don't know what was in the food, but it could have been an allergy or intolerance to gluten, dairy, nuts, or any number of ingredients in the cake.

                            To me, it seems less that you have an issue with sweets in general, and more that something IN the lemon cake may have caused your issue. I can only speculate what that may have been however.

The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

                              Every source of carbs you mention is usually made with grains, particularly wheat. So maybe gluten issues are causing the problem?

                              Have you tried some sweet potatoes or squash to see if maybe you have similar issues with them?
