I have read "Cupcake recovery" and "Does anyone have a hard time sticking to the diet when they eat at restaurants"? A lot of good advice there. . . especially the idea of fasting the next day. . . which is mostly the point of my question. How to recover from an overload of unknown oils and toxins.
We went to our local Asian buffet--all you can eat for $11.95. I thought I was making pretty good Paleo choices opting for Salmon, chicken wing, crab stuffed mushrooms w/ginger and wasabi, shrimp, mussels, ham with lots of fat, cheese covered steamed spinach and plain tea. About the only thing questionable re Paleo was the Hot and Sour soup (probably had Tofu and cornstarch) and tempura shrimp (breaded batter and probably fried in PUFA oils). Since I had fasted the previous 24 hours I was ravenous and ate two plates of the above. I don't know if it was the food itself or the shameful amount that I ate but my body reacted within four hours with diarrhea (sorry for TMI). Now, the next day I feel awful--almost like recovering from food poisoning.
I'm wondering if it would be better to fast all day (even though I have a rumbling grumbling stomach) or to have some kefir (to restore probiotics) or kombuchu or vinegar(to mop up the sugars) or a home-made coconut oil/dark chocolate wafer (for extra healthy fats). Which of these choices (alone or in combination) would you try to get back on track and feeling like oneself again. Or is there some other magical cure I'm unaware of? Suggestions that have worked for you are most appreciated.
