    Why am I so tired?

    Primal Fuel
    Is it something I'm eating? This weekend we had pizza for my son's birthday and we made a grain-free, gluten-free, honey sweetened chocolate cake. I expected to feel off from the pizza (and I did yesterday), but felt ok by yesterday afternoon.

    Sunday, I had coffee and cream, then we went out for the pizza for lunch, where I had a huge salad. We had cake but I skipped dinner otherwise.

    Yesterday, I had eggs scrambled with a little sausage, bell pepper and onion, small slice of the cake, "portuguese" roast and acorn squash. Plus my usual coffee and cream (2-3 cups).

    Today, I've had my coffee and cream (2 cups), sausage and 2 eggs, leftover roast and squash and an apple, so far. Oh, and a spoonful of mac and cheese :P (yuck).

    Any ideas?

    Crashing after a temporary sugar high from the cake maybe?

    How long have you been primal? Good chance it's 'carb flu'.

    3 days of staying clean and you should feel better. Are you keeping track of how much you are eating carb wise? Calorie wise? It would be worth the time seeing how you are doing, then you can clearly see that you are low in one area, or high in another. Then the power is in your hand, you are in control and you can chose to make the adjustments as needed, or to ride it out
    Even a small cookie will make me feel like crap for 2-3 days. So not worth it any more.

    those 'cheats' stay with you longer than you think. last time i went on a birthday cake bender, it took upwards of 4-5 days before i felt better.

    Hmm...maybe, because your blood sugar is all out of whack from your inconsistency?.... You had cake, but skipped DINNER? You might also want to consider the possibility that caffeine may play a part (that is, along with the grains and sugars - IMHO, overdoing it and a bit beyond the "20%").

    Honestly your ratio of good food:bad food here is pretty off. Perhaps it was just a bad weekend food-wise, but I'm sure that you'll feel better once you increase the primal-friendly foods and keep gluten far away.

    Edit:

    Too many cheats is the answer.

    Yeah pretty much what the others said... you are eating a lot of crap there and going half-primal half-crap is not going to do anything to make you feel better.

    What kind of dressing was on your salad?
