Hi Monkeysocks - I'm in the same boat. I had a carb/sugar rich restaurant meal Thursday night and boy did I pay for it for 2 days after! I had the worst food coma hangover.... my body was not happy with me! I got right back on plan Friday and to be honest I have been struggling with the dreaded cravings I had finally gotten rid of! I agree with JEZ , for years I thought it was normal to eat and have stomach pain and cramping after. What a wake up call this diet has been! I never knew eating wasn't supposed to hurt and this past Thursday reminded me how much better healthy eating is. So, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and jump back in. You will feel better, I promise!
