    10 hrs into my carb up and I want to vomit!!!!!


    I started my carb up last nigh and since I took my WMS post workout I have felt very queezy. Like I could throw up or crap my self any moment. It is amplified after I eat carbs too. Now that I think of it, I kinda felt like this last carb load.

    Should I cut the load short?

    The word "load" in carb load is very decieving. It brings to mind the idea that you should take in lot's of carbs at any one time on carb days. Maybe that has something to do with your upset stomach. Trying cutting the carb portions to something a little smaller, that way it will give your body ample oppertunity to digest and absorb all of this now foreign material.

    I have IBS and I sometimes have problems on my Carb Up like you. It all depends. Don't eat so many carbs at once. The insulin response to carbs is greatly amplified on The Metabolic Diet. I think that is the diet you are on....Anyway, because of that the faster carbs like WMS may make you feel sick. Try less carbs at a time and mixed with some kind of fat source to slow it down. Believe me I have a lot of experience with this. It all depends on "how" you eat. Not necessarily the carb source, sure that is part of it, but it is more how much carbs you eat and how fast you eat them. During your carb load you may tend to eat and eat and eat. Also you might eat larger portions at once instead of during your lower carb portion where you eat small evenly divided meals. That is most of the problem. You say you are 10 hours into your carb up, you may have eating too many carbs in too short a time. You can cut the carb up short if you want. You really don't need more than 12-48 hours of a carb up, that is what is given as a guideline in The Metabolic Diet book. Here is a free quote,

    "Needless to say, your body goes through a big transition weekly with this diet, whether or not you stick to the assessment protocol or increase your dietary carbs to a level where you function best. That's why it's important to know when to stop on the weekend. If you find that you have an unlimited appetite on the weekend, that's OK. You'll kick the insulin into gear that much fast. But you must be careful. Some people will have a tendency to begin laying down bodyfat faster than others. That's why you have to be aware of the point at which you begin to feel puffy and bloated. This point will vary greatly from person to person. Some people will feel hardly any response in appetite from the increased insulin. Others, however, will experience wide insulin swings and find themselves hungry and eating all the time. That's why I list 12-48 hours as the carb load on the weekends. This could be cut back to even less than 12 hours for people whose appetites become insatiable or for people who tend to begin laying down bodyfat relatively early in the carb loading phase. The important thing is knowing when you've had enough. When you start feeling puffy and bloated and detect fat being laid down, it's time to go back to your weekday high-fat/low-carb routine."

    I always get stomach aches and IBS when I carb up no matter how much I eat.
