I generally don't eat gluten, at all. It makes me unwell and makes all my pre-Paleo symptoms flare up again.
Last weekend, I was on holiday and got some really sad news regarding a member of my family. So I went on an emotional eating binge (I'm an emotional eater/recovering binge eater) and ate anything and everything for 2 days solid. I ate bread, some cake, cheesecake etc. Yes, I felt absolutely awful after it.
For the last month or so I've been making some big plans to move to another country and have been 100% sure of these plans. But on Sunday evening, I was psychologically all over the place. I was an emotional wreck and began re-thinking these definite plans that I had began to put into action for my big move. I began having doubts and was really freaking out and wondering if I was making the right decision. I honestly think that my gluten binge altered my thought process and made me doubt my own decisions and life plan.
Today, after 2 days of Paleo eating, I'm back on track, happy with life and absolutely sure of my plans.
So, my question is, does gluten affect your decision making abilities? Does it mess with your head enough to drive you to doubt yourself? Has anyone else had an experience like this?
Looking forward to your responses!!
