I have been very strict paleo for about 3 months now. Last night was my birthday so I thought I could loosen the reins for just one night. I had some soy sauce based Thai food, 2 slices of a very sugary/wheat/gluten-infested cake and red wine.
Well....I have been awake for the past 24 hours. My stomach is SO bloated I look about 9 months pregnant, I have severe tummy pains, wind, headache, chronic heartburn and just feel generally like hell. I never reacted like this pre-Paleo and am actually a little worried as to how sick I feel. Had to go home early from work and didn't sleep at all last night as I felt so ill. I also gained 4.5 pounds overnight!!
Can anybody please recommend anything or advise how long I am going to feel like this?
Does this even sound like a normal reaction or should I go to a doctor?
I have eaten a little bit throughout the day - some veggies in coconut oil and some ground turkey mince.
