I've noticed that when I overeat (on paleo foods) my heart starts to race a bit and I don't generally feel real well. Is it possible to raise cortisol levels when overeating?

Are you sure that this only occurs as a result of overeating on paleo foods and not just food in general? Might this simply occur as a result of increased blood flow to the gut?

There is a physiological limit to what you can eat in a single session. If you eat more, you'd vomit. That is what happens in the body when you overeat.
