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?
does heart racing = coritsol? maybe not. this could be your body's metabolic response to the influx of energy... you overate, ergo you've given yourself too much fuel, and thus your heartrate rises to burn more of this fuel you put in.
