The sudden change in your diet may have upset your GI tract a bit. It sounds like you may be consuming a lot more fibre than your body was used to and/or a lot of FODMAPs ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FODMAP ) which can cause digestive upset and... (more)

I say, "Nope, just fat, but thanks for noticing." I then enjoy the look of horror on their face. Mean, but just desserts for asking such a rude, intruding question.

It may be the coconut oil. It can cause some nasty nausea when you aren't used to it, and are eating it in large amounts. Even less than 2 teaspoons may be too much for you right now. Hold off on the probiotics and kombucha for now! You're... (more)

I do most of my runs, lifts, and sprints on an empty stomach. You will not loose muscle by exercising in a fasted state. It is far more important what you do after your exercise. Get enough protein, get enough food, get enough sleep! (more)

It could be a sensitivity to a particular food. Your best bet is to start keeping track of exactly what you're eating and when, and when you have symptoms. You could also do a "clean" version of the diet and gradually add things back in to see if... (more)

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)

Has anyone experienced stomach pains after eating liver? Also, does anyone know what is the reason for this?

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.

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.
