    What do you feel like when you allow some non primal back in?

    I've been about 95% primal since February, and have been very strict about following the PB. Until last night, when I ate some veggies with a dip that had Kraft Mayo in it. All last night I was horribly bloated! Then today I ate a crabcake hubby brought home for me. It obviously had been breaded, but I thought, what the hell, I've been good. Nose has started running, stomach cramps and headache!

    Serves me right for cheating, eh??

    Depends on what it is. Each thing I shouldn't eat has a different set of symptoms, which makes it easier to figure out what went wrong. Also, if my boyfriend ate the same things I did, his symptoms are different and we can cross-match.

    Now mind you, I don't intentionally eat things that I react to. Ever. But sometimes they sneak in.

    Other stuff, stuff I don't react to, is just treats.

    I'm not gluten intolerant, but whenever I eat some processed carbs, I generally feel fine. If I have too much sugar, I feel really hot like my metabolism is ramping up to burn it off, heart pounds more than usual for a few hours, but that's pretty much it. Stomach doesn't feel any differently.

    This happens to me if alcohol was involved.

    Generally nothing much happens to me except that I lose this:

    There Is Another Level Above “I’m Doing Fine” - GNOLLS.ORG

    Until you get to the level above fine you have no idea what you don't have until it's gone.

    Ditto.

    In the first couple of months, I had gut pain if I had a gluten exposure (which I assume occurred because my gut was still healing). Now I don't have pain, I just feel unwelcomely un-wonderwoman-like.

    Constant indigestion and stomach discomfort for days and days.
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    I wish i had an intolerance to gluten. It might not have took me so long to catch on to the fact it was bad for me

    Honestly? I feel fine. Last night I went to a restaurant and had a slice of pecan pie at the end. I felt stuffed - it was a heavy end to the meal - but other than that I was okay. Today I feel great. I'm clearly not particularly sensitive to gluten.

    I try to stay primal as much as I can, though. When I cheat a lot in general my weight loss stops, and I have a long way to go.
