It could just be your metabolism picking up because you just ate a fatty ball of sugar and starch. Low carbing it, I got my heart rate before bedtime all the way down to 42. I've spent the past year of my life trying to raise it back up.
    I don't do low carb. Sometimes I will carb cycle a bit, but mostly I just eat whatever paleo/primal foods look good (or are on sale). I had been doing a ZERO refined sugar things with some friends for two months. It wasn't my first sugar consumption since we ended that but pretty close. I guess that could be related.

        I guess this is sort of what I was afraid of. Since my goal with primal is to heal my gut and eliminate my autoimmune disease, that makes me think that even the occasional slip up still causes inflammation. I wonder what the impact of that is in say a week or two?

          I get this too, after eating baked goods...not just sweet stuff, but home made biscuits (my kryptonite), bread, plain pancakes & waffles, tortillas, pizza crust, etc. Home made. No mystery ingredients.

          If it doesn't make me want to lie down and take a nap, then I can actually feel thee sensation of blood pulsing through my veins and my heart beating faster/harder for a couple of hourse after eating. Occasionally even a sensation of breathlessness.

          Sugar from fruit, chocolate, candy or ice cream doesn't do this to me. Just floury baked goods.

              Yep, me too, same thing.

              And I can't really see how it's "just the carbs" doing it, because I can eat a regular FUCKTON of
              candy (snickers, resees, twix, heath, jr. mints - about 1K cals worth) and that doesn't do shit.

              Sooooooo, dunno!

              Hope you're able to figure it out, Jammies, cuz it SUPER SUCKS.

              Mine lasts a good hour. Gah.

                Last night at work there were some leftover fudge cookie things. The ingredients were not that terrible aside from flour (palm oil, the upgraded junk ingredients of less-than-abysmal quality), so I ate a few. Then, at my next break, I ate a few more. Think I ended up eating 5 or 6, they were pretty small. But the rest of the morning, heart went crazy, I felt hot and a little distant, etc. First wheat flour anything I've had in many months. Paid for it, too. Not quite worth it...would have been better off just buying a bar of chocolate.

                  Seems like for most people it must be the wheat. I think it must be the combo of wheat and sugar in my case. I don't recall getting it from just eating bread - although I can't be sure.

                  Interesting to me, I ended up getting two sores in my mouth and one in my nose, horrible sinus congestion, and had to come home from work early today to sleep. Probably a co-incidence, but perhaps eating that way is a real stressor to my body and the heart-rate is the sign.

                  The cookie experiment has ended (I did end up winning the contest ). I am happy to get back to my normal eating now.

                  I have been wondering if that response is somehow indicative of the presence of leaky gut. Anyone know?

                    It's so much speculation. There haven't been comprehensive studies on leaky gut as far as I know. And I'm even more doubtful that GAPS can fix it. I've basically been doing gaps for months, and a little red sauce and a few cookies still messed me up, so I think it's hogwash at this point. I'm back to thnking some foods are just poisonous to some people, period.

                      Knifegill, you're supposed to do GAPS for 1.5-2 years before introducing non-GAP foods. It takes a long time to heal the gut, and even when one starts introducing non-GAPS foods, it starts with fermented buckwheat, quinoa, and millet. You didn't do GAPS right, especially with eating starches, so your gut never had a chance to heal. Your not a very good GAPS example .

                            I think there is pretty solid data that leak gut exists and correlates with autoimmunity and inflammation. But its the healing it that seems more difficult. I wish there was a set plan for recovery that would work for everyone.
