I went on a little bit of a sugar bender yesterday. I didn't have any gluten, but I consumed way more table sugar and fructose than I normally do. Before that, I was eating VLC as I am trying to lose weight.
Anyway, today I feel like complete shit. But what's interesting, is I feel a lot worse emotionally than I do physically. I've struggled with depression before, and what I'm feeling today definitely feels like depression. I have no energy, no motivation, and all of my thoughts are negative and self-critical. The negative thoughts aren't even about the sugar binge (i.e. feeling guilty), but instead are about other aspects of my life in which I feel like a failure).
Does anyone else experience this? I feel like my depression is directly tied to my blood sugar. What's going on?
