How Much is Too Much Food?
We all hear on how important it is to control our food portions when we eat, and I think I may know exactly why this is true. Not only can it make you gain weight and make you feel weighed down and low in energy, but it may even make you feel like you can't breath!
At least that is what happened to me the other night. I am pretty sure that my problem was that I overate myself into a point of feeling totally sick and having trouble breathing when I laid down. Someone told me that it sounded like a form of acid reflux. Whatever it was, it really scared me.
It kind of felt like my throat was closing up when I lay down. Sort of this gaggy type of feeling. Earlier that day, I had a footlong sub from Subway, which isn't highly unusual for me. But the bad part is that I ate a whole bag of potato chips right after that. I didn't mean to. I was watching 'Once Upon a Time' at the same time and next thing I know it was gone. Those darn kettle chips are so good! Of course, then I was really thirsty, so I drank two bottles of water right after that.
I really, really need to stop eating so much. The problem is that I don't eat at work and by the time I come home I am starving. Hopefully, that never happens again. I was beginning to think something was terribly wrong.
