    I had a binge on everything sugary I could find last night after a week and a half of <10g carbs ketogenic diet.
    It's the next day and I have probably had about 20g of carbs today, but I feel very nauseous and the more serious one is I feel quite unhinged mentally. I feel like I could just freak out and punch a hole in the wall or something.
