A lot of people are saying it’s sugar rush, which I also thought so initially. But today, I found out this MIGHT not necessarily be the case always. know what, when I did c/s, I do it all on healthy foods (low sugar, even like vegetables) but even just after the first few bites, I felt sick and nauseous and shaky. So if the argument is there’s sugar rush *BECAUSE I absorbed some sugar* then this argument can’t be used to justify it (at least in my case).
Blood sugar spike, and salt. You do absorb some sugars/salts through your mouth, so that’s usually why you get a sugar rush after a c&s binge
Today I was having a medicine bridging lecture (ima pre-high school grad chosen early entry med student) we talked about the central nervous system and when the professor talked about how we process fullness and taste, (I’ll explain in simple terms) basically there are a few mechanisms that helps the brain to sense full but if the brain has a conflicting message, then it will go into fight or flight mode. So when the body enters fight or flight, it will draw blood from your intestine (and other areas of your body so you blood all goes up to your vital organs to protect it. Sometimes there might even be a change in blood pressure), even sometimes in extreme cases makes you vomit because your body wants to empty out the stomach, making your body lighter to go in flight mode like run away (so u feel nauseous). Then now another student asked him: so what if u chew gum, does it send conflicting signal because your not swallowing. Well, no, because our body is very complicated, there are other mechanisms distinguishing what you’re actually putting in your month. For example, if you have chewed gum before, the nerves that remembers taste recalls the texture and chemicals, what it feels like in the mouth etc. So that way your brain knows - oh ok my human is just chewing gum. But when u chew and spit FOOD, it’s a different story because you always swallow it, your body expects to digest it. But the case now is that you aren’t letting the food to go in, this is exactly what cause the mismatch with the signals.
hence, yes sugar rush can be one of the reason but there are also more reasons as to why you’re feeling symptoms after or when u c/s
