Do cereals, starch and sugar make you worry?

Recommended Posts

One of the things I have noticed over the past few years is that every time I eat cereals, starch or sugar I start thinking about some of the bad experiences I have had in the past.

The only explanation I can think of is that the hormones that we make when we have bad experiences such as Stress Hormone and Serotonin are the same hormones that we make when we consume sugar or starchy foods. Perhaps the brain interprets these hormone responses to sugar and starch as being the result of a stressful experience even though nothing stressful has happened?

Does anybody else find that certain types of food causes them to worry or have bad days?

My issues with starches, and sugars is that I no longer digest them very well. Bloat really easy and feel uncomfortable now days if I eat them. But yeah there is always that worry that what if you eating something contaminated, and stress can cause all sorts of chaos with ones body. Sticking to certain brands you trust and are certified gluten-free helps a lot with the stress.
