I just started Paleo 3 days ago. Today was the first time I got in any good amount of healthy fats, b/c I went grocery shopping for fatty meat and avocados today (my family eats small amounts of lean meat, lots of veggies, and lots of rice).
I'm 5'7" and 145lbs and I wanted to take off 15lbs to my original constant weight through switching to Paleo.
Today I had some beef and 1 avocado to attempt getting my 65% of caloric intake from fat.
I'm having severe issues with digesting all of this fat in my system (major gas, stomach cramps, and slight nausea when smelling fatty foods like oily meats and melted butter).
I don't know if this is normal and if I can continue eating even more fattier foods (today I had way too much protein and more carbs than necessary) not only because my stomach can't handle it, but because my palate can't.
Do you think it's too early to give up this routine and go back to my heavier-carb diet? (If I do go back, I think I will still keep out any other grains from my diet besides rice, and stay dairy-free as well. Does that seem "safe"?).
I'm in serious pain as I'm writing this D: Please help! Thank you so much for your input.
