Physical effects of cheating

Answered on August 19, 2014

I don't vary from a strict paleo diet except for maybe once every 2 months. But I just cheated with a LOT of So Delicious coconut ice cream and dark chocolate. Of course I feel bad because of all the sugar but I'm really noticing that I'm sneezing a lot. Is there a reason for that?

OK, so I failed miserably. Didn't have the right tool to cut them as thin as they needed to be and ended up just roasting them instead. They came off good then... Maybe I should have actually tried frying them...

Maybe your body is trying to tell you something. Maybe you should listen!

that would be determined by the ingredient list; no?

Potato chips are inflammatory?! Did not know that...... I ate potato chips twice last week and all the back of my neck siezed up, it was so painful - Couldn't figure out what it was, have my answer now! Quick question - Why do you advise to eat dark chocolate before 1pm? Is there a scientific reason behind it or is it a personal preference?

Haven't tried them yet, but rather than actual potato or corn chips, have you tried root vegetable chips? I've come across a couple recipes for them and am actually trying them tomorrow (will re-post and let you know how I liked them; using beets, turnips, and rutabaga).

After super clean/strict eating Paleo for about 3 months, I treated myself to a few bars of dark chocolate which had raw evaporated cane juice or something. I woke up the next day with several break outs. I don't even want to imagine what would happen if I had wheat/gluten.

I'd certainly take that as a sign your body didn't enjoy at least one ingredient in the treat. You have to decide if it's worth it or not.

"I don't vary from a strict paleo diet except when I do, and then it makes me feel really sick, and I wonder why, except I know quite well why, yet still I ask people for their opinions."

Do I have this basically right? I have my own versions of this question. I use them to keep myself stuck. So I empathize, with a certain impatience. But ultimately the impatience is toward my own game playing, of which yours just now reminds me.

I started experiencing with dairy (organic milk and cheese), chips (corn and potato), and oats.

Potato chips are an inflammatory food. Before paleo, I had lots of chest/back aches and pains. After paleo, the inflammation and aches diminished immensely.

After 2 months of a fairly strict paleo diet, the potato chips - I'm starting to think they bring back some inflammation, and make your stomach feel bloated (if you eat a lot of them).

Dairy - I'm thinking clogs up my sinuses. I'm still experiencing with it. I just had some milk and chips w/cheese. (I know - not the best. :P) I'm guessing I'll be sleeping with my mouth open, as my nose will probably clog. Not too sure on it yet though. I'll find out! :-)

I don't know if corn chips would be as bad as potato chips. But most people would say NO chips - I KNOW. I'm testing the waters.

Oats - I'm guessing full of starch and you don't really need them. Probably inflammatory, but among one of the healthier grains.

Dark chocolate - I actually consume quite often. It doesn't seem to effect me, other than make me feel good. I wouldn't advise eating a lot, and eat no later than 5pm, best if consumed before 1pm.

Healthy food makes me feel great! I just have to make sure I'm eating enough, because I have super fast metabolism - so lots of fat, and even upping the carbs helped me because earlier on with low carb I experienced brain fog.

I hope this helps some. Don't be afraid of testing different foods and how your body reacts.

The one thing that I probably wouldn't try cheating on would be gluten. It stays in your body for about 14 days. It's no good.

Actually, if you just started out, I wouldn't advise cheating yet. Give the diet a good 30 days or more, then introduce non-paleo foods (if you really want to), and see how your body reacts.
