SeanMike Posted April 22, 2014 Share Posted April 22, 2014 Just over a year ago I bought a grill. Before that I almost never cooked. I started grilling up loads of chicken, pork, veggies, etc., so that I'd have food to eat over the week. Later I bought a bike, then started running. In the fall I found out I was diabetic and had high cholesterol so I got stricter on my diet, started seeing a personal trainer, and talking to a nutritionist. So, basically, over the course of a year I lost over 60 pounds, got my blood sugar under control, am working on my cholesterol (it was there, then went back up, and we'll see), and I feel better than I have in years. But here's the thing: occasionally, I still eat something bad for me. For instance, I went to the Beer & Bacon Festival. It was awesome. I had a roast beef po' boy at the Passenger last week and it was one of the best ones I've had (period). And every night and morning after that, I've been miserable. Unable to sleep. Dehydrated/dry mouth. My stomach felt taut and I wanted to throw up. So yeah, I can't eat stuff like that anymore. That sucks, but that's probably for the best. But is there anyway to recover from that other than just time and Tums? It completely wrecks me in a way that I can't recover quickly from unlike booze. I don't want to know to enable me - I'm not going to change my habits either way, I'll still eat healthy overall and occasionally have something delicious but bad for me - but just so I don't have to call in sick to work the next day because I'm exhausted and miserable.
