After ten days of strict diet I finally gave myself permission to bake a tray of my favorite muffins. I ate five – they’re delicious! – and I after a few minutes I got a headache. This wouldn’t happen two weeks ago, back when I was habituated to consuming unhealthy amounts of chocolate. Give it a few days to return to balance and my body no longer tolerates a big, sudden dose of easily-absorbed carbohydrates.

The link is obvious: too much sugar = feeling dizzy. How is it even possible that we don’t notice this in our everyday lives?
