ugh.. overeating binge?
Good morning! Just joined the site a couple of weeks ago... have recently lost 22 lbs.. 197-175. Anyway, I'm curious if anybody else experiences this... recently I've tried to limit my white carb intake (pasta, white bread, etc.) and have done pretty well switching to whole grain/low carb, although i'm not following a specific low carb plan like South Beach. However, yesterday was a very busy day for me, and I was stressed about multiple things, so i caved last night and had a huge plate of pasta with olive oil and parmesan. I ate WAY more than I should, and of course, felt AWFUL after... not just mentally for screwing up my diet, but literally, i felt physically sick after. This morning, I woke up with a headache that I got last night after eating, and couldn't even eat breakfast (besides coffee, of course!) this morning as I still felt nauseaus. I did manage to work out for an hour after I ate last night, just because I felt so disgusted.
anyway, anyone else ever get this way after bingeing on some carbs? I have noticed I am sensitive to them... In the mornings i try and stick to a strict protein breakfast (egg white omelette and turkey bacon) b/c i've noticed that if i even have so much as a piece of whole wheat toast i'm ravenous by 10:30 for some more carbs. and i do blame those carbs for my weight gain... nothing used to make me feel better than a big bowl of pasta or some bread and cheese.
Do you think some people are just more sensitive to carbs (esp. the bad ones)?? Thanks! I can tell from reading many other posts this is an excellent place for advice!
