What's best to eat after eating refined carbs if you have been doing low-carb paleo ?

Since it's my birthday today I decided to eat some (8!) springrolls which I have been craving for. I didn't want to deepfry them so I just baked 4 of them in coconut oil and put 4 of them in the oven. They tasted like crap. Either my tastebuds have changed or they aren't the same as when deepfried.

Yeah eating paleo is really easy for me. Especially now that I don't like the only food I have been craving :P

Just go back to what you would usually eat. No need to change anything just because you had something you usually don't eat.

Don't sweat it.

Get straight back on the horse so to speak - go back to your usual routine, youll probably find you no longer crave things like that soon anyway!

My taste buds are changing so much now... the first year on paleo, there was nothing, I had cravings galore. Now looking at chocolate bars in the store make me feel sick, when I used to be friggin ADDICTED to them. Bread just seems like this dry, tasteless foam I have the option of stuffing in my mouth (why would I want to?).

Now, I'm sipping on an unsweetened cup of almond milk (used only for shakes) mixed with a tbs of spirulina. A week ago I hated the flavour and I found myself jacking it up with stevia. I hate sweet things now (you would never know I once helplessly addicted to ice cream and candy), but I had nothing else to sweeten it with at the time. But now the spirulina tastes fine. I also started eating organic, free-range, grassfed liver on Saturday. I hated it. I eat some every day (I bought in bulk and I'm trying to reverse some mild tooth decay). I had some this morning, and it was fine. I still didn't enjoy it, but it was palatable. Yesterday my boyfriend bought some organic draft root beer sweetened with sugar. I can't even remember the last time I drank sugar. I had a sip and I didn't even recognize the taste. I thought it to be bland, not even sweet (maybe I got used to the super sweetness of stevia in the past few years?) I found that I'm actually growing a taste for bitter things. I hated spirulina and liver last week. Today, I didn't mind the taste so much. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?

The last time I went on a binge, I was so sick I actually didn't eat at all for a day or two. Otherwise, though, I agree with Rhubarb and Nicole that it's best to go right back to whatever formula was working for you before. You might consider limiting the variety of foods for a few days if your GI tract is really annoyed with you. Let it rest.

I'm sure the palate does change - mine has. I had a piece of cake with coffee buttercream icing yesterday - I had really been looking forward to it as a treat, but what a disappointment. I left most of it.
