Next time grab 3 or 4 sandwiches and just eat the stuff in the middle. As for what to do after a grain binge, just try to not repeat. Other than that, keep eating clean.

No. Do not overreact by starving yourself, overexercising, or being punishingly strict. That just sets you up for a pattern of yo-yo dieting and self-abuse. You want to teach your body to see paleo eating as a healthy, enjoyable, and sustainable... (more)

Relax. You appear to be intolerant to gluten and the only thing to do is to eat a normal Paleo diet and give yourself a break. Getting some counseling for your eating concerns/anxiety may be helpful, too.

I think it's unlikely for a tablespoon of butter to cause you to gain muscle, and there are always other factors in play. It's most likely fat loss from reducing the amount of binging. If at some point you can stop binging on sugar all together... (more)
