OMG what is this crazy ecstasy-like euphoric feeling

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created May 14, 2012 at 7:00 PM

OK for the past week or so, immediately after I eat my first meal of the day (which is usually meat/eggs/bacon/veggies), I notice a significant increase in my heart beat and my head gets all dizzy (in a good way) and I feel really hyper and jumpy (in a good way) and I wanna laugh and scream and dance and hug people. I have no idea what it is but it's kinda funny and weird and I kinda love it but I'm also kind of confused so what is this new feeling I am feeling? I have not added anything new to my diet and I've been eating this way well over 6 months.

Do you still get a buzz from coconut oil? When I first started I had a euphoric buzz that only lasted a week or two...that was like two years ago and I've never been able to get that feeling back.

Lucky, all I got from bulletproof coffee is a burning in my throat like I had just vomited. Yuck.

+1, It's certainly possible, though if that were the case, there would be other negative effects. More than likely, it's just an energy boost from the good high quality fats, and providing enough amino acids for serotonin/dopamine creation. I get that from Bulletproof Coffee sometimes, or from eating roast lamb. :)

I get the same exact thing with coconut butter. Though it also happens after a good, well-digested meal with protein.

i think saw on sciencedaily that fat targets the same receptors in the brain as weed does some maybe that has something to do with it lol

And the cool thing about is that I used to be VERY shy, paleo improved that, Peat made it even better, and when I have this I start to talk to everyone like crazy, I can't shut my mouth.

April, got the same thing a couple of times when following Ray Peat's advice, but DEFINITELY don't get it after your kind of meal. High amounts of saturated fats help. I love that feeling, and the first time I got it I thought I was gonna have a huge low afterwards, but instead I just stabilized and became normal again. Wouldn't it be great if we all felt like this 100% of the time?

Who needs drugs when you've got Paleo?

I cannot say I've ever had this kind of reaction. However, I recently realized that I would much prefer a bowl of steamed brussel sprouts with onion, coconut oil and garlic salt than a bowl of my favorite ice-cream.

And if I could have some broiled salmon with it, I'd be in absolute heaven.

That was when I realized I had completely converted to paleo. :)

I'll be the negative-nelly. Maybe you are allergic and are getting an adrenaline hit. Probably not.

Do you cook your breakfast in coconut oil or ingest MCTs before the elation period? Whenever I have a sizable portion of coconut oil, it always puts me in a really good mood, similar to what you mentioned. This is magnified if I add coconut oil to some coffee- talk about heaven!!!

Paleo-ketogenic (up to 30-40 gr of carbs per day, and relatively low calories) brought bliss to me: http://eugenia.queru.com/2012/03/07/bliss/

Bacon seems to do this to me to.

How strange.
