i'm going to call "lightheaded and slightly queasy" close enough to nauseated that this might work. sometimes, for whatever reason, my hunger cues come up like this. it's not all the time, often only when i am having sinus drainage issues, but every now and then it's how hunger shows up. i've never bothered to check my blood sugar when this happens, but i've held off eating for long enough often enough [it feels just like when i can't hold food down, so i often try to hold off eating so i don't have to see the food twice] that i should have felt worse had it been blood sugar related. for what it's worth i'm not really a breakfast person either and it feels funkier if i didn't eat enough close enough to bed. but i do try and keep my carbs over 50%, so it's kind of like i always have extra carbs, so i am not sure if that has anything to do with it.

Ha Gram, you're right, I don't get sick very often. Hardly at all actually, and even then it's usually just a cold here and there. I'm feeling OK now... it was just so weird!
I also wonder if it has to do with our wacky weather here... It was really warm earlier in the week, then snowed yesterday, now it's sunny and warming up again. Maybe the air pressure changes or whatever is making me feel weird :)
Well let me say Julz you must not get sickly very often. Is it continuing through today? If it continues that's something else again. Not to worry. You are just human like the rest of us.

Let me preface this that I've never been much of a breakfast eater, I usually eat a small one when I get to work at 9. I've never had a problem with it before, I usually do not feel hungry at all until I get to work.
So, this morning after I got up I was feeling not OK throughout getting ready... sort of queasy and lightheaded. I've never had that happen before. I opted to eat a small piece of cornbread on my way out the door (the only thing I had handy) and drank a diet coke on my hour drive into work, and now I'm feeling better. Also, I ate plenty of calories yesterday...more carbs than I would have liked and normally have but still well within my ranges for all nutrients. I went over my max calories (1800) by 20. Also had plenty of protein (128 grams) and fiber (27g). I was also in my ranges in previous days too.
Could the extra carbs from yesterday have caused a freaky blood sugar spike? I would have thought that would have occured earlier than 10 hours after eating though. I usually try to stick to 200 or less, yesterday was 242.
So my question is, has anybody else ever randomly felt this way? Is it just a fluke because our bodies can be weird sometimes?
