Carb Flu - just now putting it together.
I've read a whole bunch about carb flu and when it affects those who have gone paleo/primal etc for a long time before I even started on 12/12/12. I did great for like.... 5 days, then there were a couple cheats. One day I ran out of stevia so used sugar in my coffee, one day we went out to eat and I had gluten,... I've been 100% again since we went grocery shopping on Thursday.
The past couple days I keep telling my friends I'm not feeling good and that I thought I was coming down with the flu, I just felt so crappy and tired. I woke up early this morning and just now had a nap. I'm taking a nap, sometimes two every day b/c of fatigue for the last 3-4 days.
I just assumed since I had cheated that I couldn't be going through carb flu, but that doesn't make sense b/c it's called carb flu not gluten flu or sugar flu right? lmao... So... I'm assuming this is what I'm feeling, right, carb flu?
feeling overheated with no fever
I'm sure there's other stuff.
Sounds like carb flu. But I'm assuming its called 'flu' because it mimics the actual virus symptoms. Could be either one. I think you should continue to eat for optimal health and treat the symptoms you're experiencing regardless of the cause.
And don't let perfection get in your way. A teaspoon of sugar is not going to undo a weeks worth of primal eating.
*My obligatory intro
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
