    When I eat something fairly bad I sometimes feel like breathing feels noticeably heavier (though no difficulty). I assume this is normal to a degree, as currently in good cardiovascular health as far as I know.
    Is this a common experience after eating crap?
    Just curious! Cheers

    This isn't something I've ever noticed, I'm very badly asthmatic though so tbh I don't tend to notice if it's just a minor change. It's possibly worth mentioning to your GP if you happen to be there sometime, even if you don't make an appointment specifically for it? It sounds quite odd and there's no actual reason I can think of but I'm not a medical professional. It could even be psychological with you knowing you've eaten junk food but I don't know. Maybe someone will come up with something more useful or who's experienced similar anyway, you've got me curious now too!

    Its something that rarely others have reported to me about themselves as well. That so called 'fat' feeling after eating rubbish. Just curious as to if its like a recorded phenomenon beyond 'fat feeling' lol, and how normal it is.
    If abnormal, I wonder if it is indicative of some sort of underlying thing which generally speaking is sort of 'accommodated' for.
    Though always thought it must be psychological.

    I sometimes feel a bit breathless after a large/unhealthy meal. I don't mean like eating til I can't move big or anything.
