When you fall off the wagon, do you get 'food drunk'?

It make you feel rank doesn't it. I used to love a good binge, but I can't handle it these days.

Wheat could also be to blame. I have gluten free pasta or granola as a bit of a treat and they don't have the same effect.

Yup, its a blood sugar / insulin response thing.

I get food drunk too and it makes me feel really sleepy. Then I get a food hangover the following day. The food drunkness and hangover has got much worse as I've got older.

Yes, I do if I eat certain foods - sweets (but not chocolate), biscuits, pizza & cake. Bread & things are fine although I get bloated quickly.
