To me at least, food is like chemo, I’ll die without it, but it makes me feel terrible.

I'd love to eat socially once a week and just have a pill on other days

I can't fathom this. I have a condition that makes me incredibly nauseous and STILL I long to cook and eat beautiful meals, even though I can barely tolerate them.

Oh I love to eat too but it always makes me feel like trash.

Do you have undiagnosed food allergies/sensitivities? Food shouldn't make you feel like crap.

All foods? What do you macros (Fat, protein, carbs) look like? If you have a carb heavy diet, that could be what's making you feel terrible.

In my experience, it's anything that's processed enough to be easily digestible. I can have a whole bag of dried fruit with no consequences, but half the amount of something fatty/cheesy will make me want to just take a nap.

Very odd. Fats and proteins should help you feel satiated versus the fast burn and decline after having processed carbs. Consider trying a few meals of salmon or chicken breast, with only veggies for sides. That should provide quality macros, and you shouldn’t feel like garbage after each of those meals. If I can be of any further assistance, please email me (email in profile).
