[quote:8c17f8d8c9="gofish"][quote:8c17f8d8c9="cranberrycat"]I can't believe that I did this, but now that I did, I wondered if anyone had any advice on how to "fix" it.
Now, I feel bloated, have a splitting headache (and Motrin 600 mg didn't relieve it).
I would not eat anything until I was sure that that big meal was fully digested. It will be longer than usual to the next meal. Then I would only eat one block super favorable snacks spaced 1.5 to 2 hours apart until I was caught up on the extra blocks consumed at breakfast. That should get you back into the Zone a bit quicker than just going back to the planned meals --at least it does for me.[/quote:8c17f8d8c9]
You are right, it did take longer to digest, I started to feel better after 4 hours, and lots of water. I started to feel slight hunger about 6 hours after the meal, but I didn't get your message, and I had my normal lunch--3 oz beef sauteed in onions, artichoke hearts, garbanzo beans, also some almonds for fat (along with olive oil that I sauteed in). I did feel more hungry this afternoon, my lunch did not really sustain me.
I don't know if I would have had any better results doing it the way you said, but if I start preparing meals in my sleep again, I will try it your way next time.
