    Hey guys, I would LOVE if you could hook me up with studies about this. I'm currently taking psychology and may end up doing a paper on just this very thing.

    I would love to read some studies about this as well. I am going to guess that none exist though.

    David Kessler says much the same in The End of Overeating, how mice get a dopamine response when eating wheat.
    5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106.5 lbs because of sugar cheating.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.

    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    LOL disregard rat studies or is it more that they are not Ancel Keys approved? As I said there is a very famous one in Wheat Belly and there are others out there but I am sure you can find them if you want to.

    Yes, I read once that eating 10 slices of wholemeal wheat bread could induce an LSD-style trip.

    I have been eating 80/20 for the last 2 years or so. I rarely eat grains much anymore, when I do I often get a sugar like rush and headache. The mind altering part I have noticed in just the last few months. I don't like pizza much anymore, but I have eaten it to be social with others. I have had it maybe 4 times in the last 5 months. Every one of those times, the next day I am extremely irritable and actually angry. It is like being in a very bad mood where almost anything can get under your skin and lasts almost the whole day. Anyone else have this reaction?
