    Puffy Face from eating Desert??

    Shop Now
    Last night, I had a cheat meal and ate a piece of lemon cake. This morning I woke up with a puffy face and feel like a drank last night. I also have glassy eyes.

    I have been eating Primal for about 6 months now and occasionaly will have wheat/pasta/cake and it does make me sick. And when I do have pizza, I would have a gluten free crust.
    I havent really experienced the puffy face before. this is the worst reaction I have had since I went Primal.

    Do you think its from the cake? and that I could be allergic to wheat?

    Wanted to see if anyone else had similar symptons after being primal and then cheating with desert (cake).

    thanks!

    I know before primal, my eyelids had become swollen especially in the am. After a couple weeks primal the eyelids were normal, unless I cheat for a day or two..right back to swollen. Also, for years I suffered from a red nose, similar to that of a drunk, after dropping wheat and gluten for about two weeks I realized my nose was no longer red.

    You get sick eating wheat - enough said.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Carb hangover. It's a real thing.

    There are no cheat days. There are days when you eat primal and days you don't. As soon as you label a day a cheat day, you're on a diet. Don't be on a diet. ~~ Fernaldo

    It's dessert. Two Ss because you want seconds. Eating the desert will of course make your face puffy. Those cactus spines are going to hurt.

    The way I was told to remember which spelling is which was this: One s is for sand, Two ss is for strawberry shortcake.

    And yes, carb hangovers are real and not worth it.
