This is an embarrassing post. Yesterday I decided to drink at a Memorial Day get together. I didn't want to drink much, so I bought a four-pack of beer. Before I went primal (Less than two months ago), four beers would be a warm up for me. It usually takes about seven or eight beers before I start to become tipsy and usually I stop around that point, but I would normally have to drink more than a dozen beers before I would have to worry about getting sick. Even then, I'd have a hard time drinking that much beer because I would get tired or bloated.
What I'm getting at, is that I know or at least knew my limits when it comes to drinking beer and four beers is no where near my limit. However, yesterday I became extremely ill after only drinking four beers. It was like I had gone back to my college days and had gone shot for shot, instead of having a causal beer.
Has anyone experienced a new level of sensitivity to alcohol after switching to a primal lifestyle?
The only other thing I think that could have caused it is sun poisoning. I'm certainly leaning towards the sun poisoning theory, as today I am dizzy and feverish and I think I might just glow in the dark.
I'd hate to think I can't drink beer anymore. Then again, if I can't its a small price to pay for better health.
Just curious. Anyone else find they are more sensitive to alcohol or should I just leave the moral of the story as this:
Sun + alcohol = Misery
