so, took the leap from gf/df to paleo about 2 months ago. I had no choice but to eat out a few weeks ago (applebees, steak fries and applesauce) it was gross, and I felt a little off, I felt like I ate as clean as I could.
. I had a real soda (all real ingredients, no fake stuff) about an hour later I had a headache and felt bitchy. I have had more energy since going paleo. I was always hormonal with bad mood swings before paldo. I have not felt hormonal even through my cycle until I had the soda. I "healed" from those 2 times, and tried raw/organic/grassfed cheddar and felt like death (I know I cant eat dairy...I thought raw would be different...) anyway, today I wanted to treat the kids with something and used king arthurs blend of flour...Gluten free but def not grain free. By 11 I was exhausted!
Is this normal? Eat grains after not having them and feeling tired....
Having a bit of real sugar and turning crazy cranky....
I dont want food to be an "issue" I was hoping a treat once a month with the kids would be alright. My kids like paleo, but they enjoy a gf treat too! I dont bake with sugar, but prefer maple syrup.
