I'm new to Paleo (what a surprise!) and I have a few questions that I have not been able to find answers for on these boards. I don't know anyone to ask in real life. Thanks in advance for your help!
Ever since I started Paleo two weeks ago my stomach has felt terrible. I have never had stomach issues in my life and now it's upset all the time. I hate talking about bathroom things but you get the idea. It seems everyones stomachs feel better on Paleo except for mine. Before Paleo, I could do things like literally drink a half a gallon of milk or eat a block of cheese and be fine. I could eat a whole box of pasta. I know I am not lactose sensitive and I don't have celiac's. My stomach seemed to enjoy non-Paleo foods!
Another thing, going along with this, is that I find that I almost can't stand the taste of meat anymore. I never liked meat too much, even as a kid, although it had nothing to do with animal rights or vegetarianism or anything like that. I love raw fish and steak, but all of this chicken, turkey, pork etc I've been eating lately is driving me nuts. I'm a good cook but it's something about the actual taste of meat that bothers me. I find myself dying to pick the chicken out of my paleo salads. I love vegetables so much, the meat ruins it.
So there it is. I am not overweight at all. I am very healthy, I exercise a lot and HARD. I don't need to lose weight, I am trying to be healthier. Is it possible that there are some people whose bodies don't agree with this diet? I had no problem staying skinny and fit when I used to eat things like rice and pasta with less meat thrown in. I am starting to wonder if the stomach upset and dislike for meat is my body telling me that this isn't the best idea for me.
