I’m in healthcare too!  So I “get” the physiological and metabolic aspect of it, BUT I just *love* adapting to a diet and having my body change norms!  I’m sorry you feel crummy, but in the long run–this rocks!

I can’t add anything as to why this happens but I’m the exact same way! I’ll eat clean and healthily for two weeks then I’ll decide I deserve a little treat and eat something not-so-good for me. After I eat the ‘treat’ I feel like crap for like a day afterwards, it’s soo not worth it… but I keep doing it. Why are crappy foods so delish?

I think it is. Have you ever noticed that the first time you eat poorly after eating well for awhile, it never tastes as good as you expected it to? I think that has to do with the fact that we can get mildly addicted to certain things (refined sugars, fake sugars, etc) and so they trigger certain pleasure centers at the point where we’re having them a lot. This happened to me with soda – I gave it up and accidentally had one about a year later – it was awful! Never went back.

After you have changed your diet & try to go back to the bad foods, yes, your body will want to beat you up for it. I went vegetarian & within a couple of months my energy level was skyrocketing, weight had dropped & I felt great. Then I had a small bit of chicken and my body made me pay dearly.

This happens to me when I eat healthy home made meals for a while and then order fast food! It’s your body telling you that stuff isn’t good for you, but I hardly ever listen!

Of course! Your body just isn’t accustomed to the kind of junk anymore. 🙂

My advice is not to stop treating yourself once in a while, but to go with smaller portions when you do. Half a sandwich maybe, and some raw or steamed veggies to fill up. 🙂
