We don't need a lot of fiber, contrary to popular belief. It could be too much fat at once. A lot of fat in one meal (especially coconut oil) can cause digestive issues until she gets used to it. Also, Google FODMAPS.

I think it's more of an issue of hyper palatability - as with most processed foods. You shouldn't, naturally, find umami (glutamate in the whey), sweet, salty, and fatty all in the same morsel.
