Sunlight and cheats

Answered on August 19, 2014

Is the impact of "cheat meals" lower on sunny days (assuming you get some sunlight)?

Had some nasty meals (gluten, [hydrogenated] vegetable oils, loads of sugar, soy, etc...) over the past two days and surprisingly I don't feel like crap nor am I having breakouts. Actually I feel great, even better (I know I have to up my carb intake).

So it leaves me wondering. Is the worst part yet to come or are the extremely sunny days past week minimizing the damage? Or may my gut be more healed because of my daily cup of bone broth (which is extremely jelly)?

Thanks for pointing this out. Had a lot of chocolate too so this is a very likely possibility.

I think it's pretty hard to draw any definitive line between the sun and feeling better after cheats. I'd bet it's the carbs. I still get an endorphin rush when I eat more carbs than I'm used to, like an addict going back to a drug.

Nope. I live in Santa Fe & get lots of sun all the time. I still have a nasty digestive reaction if I have a gluten/oils cheat.

I don't think it's necessarily the magic of vitamin D or bone broth. You've perhaps healed your gut and no longer suffer from detectible gluten-sensitivity.
