Wheat and sugar are poison

I don't care what anyone says, wheat and sugar are like a poison to me. For the last couple of weeks I've been eating a little crazy. I've had bread, pasta, lots and lots of sweets, definitely not good. It reached a fever pitch over the weekend and lasting until Tuesday. I had Munchies

By yesterday I was a wreck. I constantly felt like I needed to go to the bathroom. I was tired, but not just tired, exhausted. I came home from work yesterday and took an hour and a half nap. Luckily, by Tuesday night I was coming to my senses and yesterday I ate clean, really clean. Today I also ate clean and I'm starting to feel like I'm recovering. I don't feel like my stomach is sticking out a mile, I have a little more energy than I did yesterday. Things are definitely improving. I have read so much stuff on how paleo is a lie and how we can eat these things and it's fine for us. I think that was true years ago. Unfortunately we have modified our wheat so much it no longer resembles what it used to be. Also, I don't think diet is a one size fits all proposition. I think you really have to find what works for you. And I truly believe that Paleo is it. So it's back to paleo and off the crack. My body just can't take it.
