ill effects from too much rich food??

wurstle | Jun 7, 2004 05:00 PM

my s/o and I ate dinner last night at a fantastic American/French restaurant. We had nine courses which were all fabulous, but very very rich in fat - including foie gras and butter sauces, etc. We also had 3 or 4 glasses of wine and a cocktail (but over four hours). For the past couple of months we've been dieting by limiting our caloric intake and cutting down our portion sizes and trying to stay away from dessert and fatty foods. We haven't been drinking much alcohol either.

We didn't sleep well at all last night and had stomach problems - S/o felt sick to his stomach all night and even now, 12 hours later, I still feel kind of sick and it doesn't feel anything like a drinking hangover.

So here's the question (yes, finally): could it be we ate something that was bad - like a bad clam or are our bodies just freaking out over last night's meal??
