Quick question guys,

I have been off gluten for about 5 months now. I have been pretty low carb for these past few months. I have slowly added back in a little more carbs in the past month. Ironically, i have had more energy than the past 5 months. However, i have noticed that when i eat a heavy dinner, usually with heavy carbs/meats/fats and overeat a bit sometimes my left foot starts to get some neuropathy. I am not sure what this means. It could also happen in my hand. But it always deals with overeating near dinnertime.

COuld there be soy in these big dinners you eat?? I am realizing that soy leads to neuropathy for me. If you finish a nice meal with chocolate, that could be the culprit. Most chocolate has soy. I made gluten-free brownies for my daughter yesterday. I hadn't eaten any soy in a week with the hopes that was the problem. No tingling for a week. I popped one of the yummy gluten-free brownies in my mouth and today I have a tinge of tingle. Just a thought.

What carbs do you eat? Grain based carbs, or other starch-like carbs? Is there anything that you traditionally eat at dinner time with big meals like this that you are unlikely to eat for breakfast or dinner?

If this is a symptom you usually get with gluten, I'd look to contaminated gluten-free grains (sadly, not uncommon), or perhaps a food that you eat more at dinners like this.

For me, one thing that turned out to be a problem was the oils I'd use to cook dinner with, but seldom used for breakfast or lunch - the oils were all from the same company that ran wheat germ oil on the same line and some batches were contaminated enough to make me react.

If this isn't a symptom you get with gluten, hopefully someone here has some ideas, like the soy! :-)

Thanks guys,

No its not soy or cross contamination because everything is whole foods usually. I am not currently eating any grains either. I think it has something to do with my digestive capacity right now. What do you guys think about this whole "don't eat protein and starches together" thing? I ate a big meal last night for dinner but instead of eating it all in one sitting i split it up into two portions and ate it with about 45 minutes in between and the symptoms didn't come up. It's like my body can only handle so much food in any one sitting. And i think dinner is the meal it usually happens because my system has been working hard all day digesting the rest of my food.
