Has anybody here ever grown sensitive to "cheat foods" from dieting?
I've been dieting for a while now but have had a vacation in there and a couple scheduled cheat days. Yesterday was one so I'll share my experience. I ended up in the bathroom 4-5 times, it becomes a blur after 3 lets be honest, and each time not even an hour after said cheat meal. It either wants to come up, or go out. In yesterdays case it was go out. I also end up with stomach discomfort all day unless I eat something healthy. If I dare mention my vacation lets just say it was 10x worse.
Here's my typical DIET day foods:
- 1 Protein shake (breakfast) consisting of bananas, strawberries, skim milk, 2 scoops whey, 2 tbsp Natty PB
- Tilapia, and lots of it. It's my main source of protein
- Brown Rice Cakes, easier than rice
those items right there are my staple, but here are some other foods that make appearances once in a while if I get bored:
- egg whites
- salmon, flounder, & cod
- blueberries & apples
That's about it. I'm very strict, which I believe is the result of my digestive issues. The big picture of this is good, I suppose. Considering I've been known to really go all out when I'm not dieting with pizza, ribs, candy, etc. Bulking will certainly be better than it's ever been and my overall well being and health will be great for my remaining years. The down side is I can't really enjoy "normal" food in a social setting.
Back to my first question, has this happened to any of you? Is it just a sensitivity to gluten? What exactly is my body doing? Thoughts. Anything will be helpful or insightful.
