    The body may react with a high heart frequence to SOME toxic agents, other toxic agents may infact lower the heart rate. A cookie is not a toxic agent as far as I understand. Interesting is the physiological response to sugars and fast carbs when on a low carb diet, the blood pressure goes up and veins pop out on the skin, but this is a normal response, and not patholgical...

    You mean this is a normal response to an agent that may or may not be toxic in your current circumstance and you hope it doesn't lead to pathology

    Anyhow.... Yes SOME toxic agents lead to rapid heart rate. And in a cookie (even a homemade one) its a possibility.

    Peter did a good post on what constitutes toxic here Is sugar toxic? The Eating Academy | Peter Attia, M.D. The Eating Academy | Peter Attia, M.D.

    But, I'm not necessarily relegating it to just sugar. We're talking bout a cookie, so who knows which constituent produces the effect. Heck it very well could just be a response to an overfeed and subsequent decrease in parasympathetic inhibition and/or increased sympathetic response. This is a known response and could be the most likely mechanism. Did OP have the cookies in addition to large dinners?

    My thoughts as well - an increase in force-frequency of heart contraction can be attributed to increased binding of adrenaline to the beta adrenergic receptors in the heart, which is stimulated by an up-regulation of the sympathetic nervous system. So basically, this is the opposite reaction you'd get if you were to take beta-blockers, as they block the beta adrenergic receptors (surprisingly enough).

    Same thing happens to me after tasty baked goods, thought it was the sugar as well,
    but then it happened to me after a togo's sandwich AND a western bacon cheeseburger
    from carl's jr., so I'm thinking it's the wheat as well.

    That said, it happens after a f*ckton of snickers and twix (tra la la la la), but I'm talking
    GOBS of them.. gobs...

    It has a mixture of white sugar and brown sugar. I don't think there is any fructose.

    I do have an autoimmune condition. How is that related?

I've spent the past year of my life trying to raise it back up.
    I don't do low carb. Sometimes I will carb cycle a bit, but mostly I just eat whatever paleo/primal foods look good (or are on sale). I had been doing a ZERO refined sugar things with some friends for two months. It wasn't my first sugar consumption since we ended that but pretty close. I guess that could be related.

    I guess this is sort of what I was afraid of. Since my goal with primal is to heal my gut and eliminate my autoimmune disease, that makes me think that even the occasional slip up still causes inflammation. I wonder what the impact of that is in say a week or two?

    I get this too, after eating baked goods...not just sweet stuff, but home made biscuits (my kryptonite), bread, plain pancakes & waffles, tortillas, pizza crust, etc. Home made. No mystery ingredients.

    If it doesn't make me want to lie down and take a nap, then I can actually feel thee sensation of blood pulsing through my veins and my heart beating faster/harder for a couple of hourse after eating. Occasionally even a sensation of breathlessness.

    Sugar from fruit, chocolate, candy or ice cream doesn't do this to me. Just floury baked goods.
