I have to admit that I didn’t eat very well this past weekend. I ate too much bread and had a few too many adult beverages. I am really feeling it today. I can’t decide if I’m getting sick or if I have a gluten hangover.,
When I first cracked by gluten habit a couple years ago after my initial nutrition check in, I had a couple pretty severe reactions happen to by body. A few days of serious brain fog and soreness made me feel sort of lost and tired. I couldn’t focus and my brain felt restless. After the feeling of lethargy subsided I felt amazing. I’m looking forward to that feeling again.
I’ve done a little research on the topic of how to cure gluten hangovers. Most of the time people experience a bad metallic taste in their mouths and no amount of water will make it go away. The most important step is remaining hydrated. If you need any information about water consumption and proper hydration there are many past blog references on this topic.
Gluten hangovers are brought on not only by the consumption of gluten, but also the sugars that are associated with it. To get your body, and brain, back on the right track, a couple spoonfuls of coconut oil twice a day and avoiding any type of high glycemic carbohydrates will help speed things along. Your body is transitioning from using glycogen (sugars) as it’s main energy source to ketone (fats). Eating sugar and avoiding healthy fats can prolong your symptoms.
There’s no cure all for gluten sensitivity, besides avoiding it and living a healthy lifestyle. With these two simple steps, and a couple days passing, you will feel better again.
Are any of you experiencing a gluten hangover?
Zea is going to kill me for this, but it might be worth it:)
