    "The next day I felt like I'd been hit with a train. I couldn't breathe properly, my muscles and bones ached, I had such bad fluid retention that I couldn't see my ankle bones.. and I had terrible nausea."

    -- this is from eating a chocolate easter egg?!?

    Again, it is far from my place to try and define what "normal" reactions to foods are, but this seems pretty severe. I agree that eating candy is generally not a good thing, but I don't think this represents a normal response to sugar.

    If this was my reaction to sugar/grains, I might be as dogmatic as some of the other posters on this site. Luckilly it is not.

    I had a Jawsome (more than just awesome, people...) Jamaican cajun burger with spinach and mushrooms at a local diner. I ate the bun and ordered curly fries. Didn't finish my curly fries but I damn sho' ate all of the burger, it was delicious.

    Point being: bun didn't start any sh*t, we cool, we cool.

    I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

    Anaphylactic shock from walnuts = bad reaction.

    Biohazard-level aftermath from lactose intolerance = bad reaction.

    For me it's more like the difference between having your hand set on fire (walnuts, lactose) vs. getting a bad sunburn over 4 days (gluten grains, sugar).

    A single bite of cake on my wedding anniversary brought back the arthritis within a half hour, and it stayed for almost three days. NEVER AGAIN.

    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    I can eat rice with no ill consequences but any other high carb food causes me no end of stomach issues. This was the case long before I was into primal. I haven't been eating high carb foods for years due to stomach issues caused from bread, pastas, potatoes, etc.

    I can eat almost unlimited amounts of bread, pasta, rice etc. with no ill effects after, but choose not to. I guess I've evolved But I cannot handle excessively sweet foods.
