    Eating Makes Me Anxious?

    I do OMAD and typically fast 19-22hours every day.

    For the past week I've been noticing that, I feel absolutely amazing during my fast - but as soon as I've eaten... I get this weird, edgy, anxious feeling. It typically lasts about 4 hours. And then I go exercise. I feel better immediately after the exercise. That may be due to the endorphins or because it actually takes away the edgy feeling, I'm not sure.

    I haven't changed anything diet wise... I mostly eat vegetables (this may or may not include a potato, depending on what I'm craving), lots of healthy fat, and my protein sources are 70% vegetarian. Mostly lentils, beans, eggs and fish, with occational meat. Dessert is usually a piece of fruit (apple) or 1 or two blocks of 85% chocolate.

    I typically open with healthy fats...about 400 calories worth. (I like REALLY creamy coffee, or hot chocolate...). And I feel fine after that. It's literally just after I've finished my meal, even before I have something sweet.

    I should also mention the anxiousness isn't emotional. There is no emotional reason for it... it seems to be purely physical.

    Any ideas?

    Not sure if it's the same, but it reminds me a bit of something I often have after eating a big plate of pasta, or some stews. My heart-rate goes up and I feel a bit nervous and restless. Something like that? It doesn't really happen when I move a lot after the meal, so maybe that correlates with your description of feeling better after exercise (perhaps it helps with digestion? I'm no expert at this).
    However, a quick fix for me is to drink 10 sips of cold sparkling mineral water whenever it happens and trying to distract myself.

      That is exactly what it feels like! I also think exercise might help, but I can't exercise until a while after eating, otherwise it makes me feel sick.
