Stomach Pain Questions
I have been on the paleo diet for three weeks and a few days ago I was recommended to try bone broth to improve my gut. I made a batch from chicken bones and had two servings on the first day - all good. I left the broth covered in a saucepan... (more)
In order to have a little broth every day, I freeze mine in mason jars. (don't fill them all the way up or they will crack). Then I keep one thawed jar in the fridge, and defrost a frozen one when the fridge one is almost gone.
I always had trouble with clams, mussels, octopus and oysters - yesterday I had 5 fresh oysters hoping I would finally be able to digest them after 5 months of pretty strictly eating paleo... even had some apple cider vinegar just before it to... (more)
For months I fried a small oyster with a strip of bacon for breakfast every day. Sometimes I'd chop the oyster into an egg and cook a small omelet with the bacon. Never any stomach problems.
For about 2 years I have suffered with gastritis. I have indegestion with reflux. This gives me discomfort after eating any food. The disconform is around my heart and it radiates into my under arm, sholder and neck. Lots of gas! Breakfast always... (more)
Hi, I'm Flynn, a thirteen year old boy who has been on paleo for the good part of this year so far. I have to admit, I love the diet. I feel more energised physically and mentally and I have dropped off a huge amount of weight. I do get teased... (more)

I notice when I have a hefty amount or more then normal amount of fat and protein during the day and especially before bed I wake up the next morning with a dull pain in my lower right abdomen. I don't quite know if this is gas or something else... (more)
I know I get stomach pains when I eat certain foods, and after paying attention to them for a while, I have noticed the worst offenders. However, I'm wondering if there is a common compound or "type" of foods that indicates something I should be... (more)
Hey, the title pretty much speaks for itself, it first happened about 9 months after cleaning my eating up. There were no other symptoms, i hadn't eaten anything out of the ordinary, there was basically nothing apart from this odd painful sudden... (more)
I am very new to the Paleo Diet and have been having some issues with what I think is digestion. Every day, all day long I have a huge empty pit in my stomach and a lot of gargling. It doesn't hurt, more uncomfortable than anything. I don't feel... (more)
About a month ago I made this cauliflower bacon soup recipe, where I steam a small head of cauliflower, stick it in the blender with coconut milk and chicken broth, and add in bacon and sausage. I'd had it a few times before and I loved the... (more)
Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable - they are generally gassy.
Hello All, A little background: I have been eating paleo/traditional foods-ish for almost 2 years. Which for me means; no wheat, very little dairy, no legumes, no industrial oils (unless I am eating out). What I do eat; meats, liver, home-made... (more)
I think it's unlikely that rice itself is the problem. I would go to a (specialized) doctor and get it checked out. Just to be safe. Self-diagnosing stomach pains can be a bad idea.
Hello, I've been eating a paleolithic diet since about Thanksgiving of last year. I've lost roughly 25 lbs and for the first few months there were no issues. In late January I asked a question here because I thought I was having some digestive... (more)
Hello, I discovered Paleo 4 weeks ago and tomorrow I start my 5th week of 100% Paleo eating. I jumped in feet first and haven't looked back. I've lost 15 lbs in this time, and although I have a long way to go in that department, I am doing it... (more)
So, I've been improving somewhat with the GERD but am now wondering if I might have a stomach ulcer. Pain above sternum/sternum, bloating and aching. No dark stools or anything, but I was curious as to if that matched up to symptoms. I'm not... (more)
Frequently when eating, I notice a discomfort high in my stomach, just below the center of the rib cage. Sometimes it's a full cramping or throbbing sensation in the same area. The only trigger food I'm fairly certain that causes this is a raw... (more)
I'm new to Paleo - Day 10 today. I've followed pretty close to perfect, but the standard plan, not with auto-immune restrictions. Typical day is 3 eggs with peppers and onions, two slices of turkey bacon for breakfast; paleo meat and veggie recipe... (more)
Hi hackers, Has Paleo ruined you? I think it's ruined me. Everyone talks about how once you go Paleo you become hyper sensitive to non-paleo foods, such as pizza, deserts etc...Well, I've noticed this lately and last night it all came to a... (more)
Hi! Well, I love fat. :3 If i eat too much fat, I'll know it because I get bloated and my stomach might hurt a tad. Usually I tend to eat coconut milk/cream. This morning I woke up Went in the fridge and saw the lovely jar of coconut cream. I... (more)
I wouldn't assume that fat absorption in general is impaired based on an experience with a processed version of an evolutionarily novel fat source. Eat a ribeye steak and report back.
After experiencing bouts of pretty intense upper abdominal pain and paying close attention to my diet, it seems that the common factor is kefir! I only tried kefir for the first time a few months ago and it's awesome, but it always seems to give... (more)
I am relatively new to Paleo. Well, new in the sense that I have just begun to actually implement it. I have known about it and done much research into it for about a year or so now. But after having been on the diet for just a few days, I am... (more)
I have been eating paleo for about 4 or 5 months with no problems. However I have recently developed stomach pains after eating, severe gas, and constipation. These symptoms started about 6 weeks ago exactly on the first day I started my sophomore... (more)
I'll start by saying I don't think my stomach flu/ diarrhea is caused by my Paleo diet. What I'm hoping to get is advice on what I should eat while I'm recovering. Background: I went to a wedding on Friday, and a number of (mostly Paleo) foods... (more)
Hello, Ever since going Primal, I have been hit with mega stomach pain and cramps. Whenever I eat any "animal," whether it be eggs, chicken, beef, or fish, I always get a burning/cutting sensation in my stomach. The food simply "sits" there for... (more)
You might be low on stomach acid. Have you tried adding betaine and digestive enzyme supplements at the beginning of your meals? And are you chewing really, really well?
This is something I have dealt with most my life. And I'm not talking like an annoying ache. I mean full on, screaming, ripping-your-guts kind of pain. I don't eat them so no need to tell me that part, heheh. But I've always wondered why these... (more)
Now this feels like a silly question to be asking, but i'll ask anyway. After not eating dairy for 6 weeks i had my first creamy sauce with meatballs the other night cooked by my gf (also partaking in paleo). And today i'm experiencing horrible... (more)
