If you eat cooked veg, this is a likely outcome. It took me a long time to discover that all veg or fruit which, when cooked, have a sweet taste, cause me to bloat gassily. When I dropped them from my diet altogether for a while, then slowly... (more)

They don't sit well with you mentally or physically? Because if it is a problem with taste, you can chop the liver/kidney up and mix into a meatloaf or burger patties. You won't be able to taste it.

Try eating just the yolk... you may have a issue with the whites alone (ovo leptins). See if you still have an issue. If that is the case, you may just have to eat something other than eggs, or just egg yolk.

You stomach is not really empty, but is already full. When the water arrives it has to leave fairly quickly, starting within 5 minutes into the small intestine, and more or less all gone in half an hour.

Could you get a blood glucose meter and check your fasting, then before a meal, right when you feel dizzy and then an hour and 2 after? Rule out blood sugar issues (even while vlc, it can happen) then we can it down.

Is it only after liver? Or do you experience the same symptoms after foods like cheese or shellfish? It could be that you're sensitive to histamine.
