I'm trying to eat a mostly high fat and high protein diet, but ever since I started it I have no appetite. I'm often nauseous and can only eat once a day. I feel a ton of pressure in my gut, to the point where I have to lay on my stomach to... (more)
It's good you are seeing a doctor. I agree with Nance. Another thing you have to do is STOP being on a restrictive diet. You have to eat and if it's non-paleo food that's better than starving. Ice cream, milk shakes, anything. Have you ever... (more)
Hi everyone, I'm wondering if anyone here dealt with gastritis and how they were able to heal their stomach? My current protocol is: aloe vera, DGL, L-glutamine & arabinogalactan powder mixture (twice daily on empty stomach) probiotics... (more)
I know there are lots of poop questions on here but none of them really help me out. I've brought this up before when I first started Paleo and had people telling me to up my carbs, up my fats, lower my fats, lower my protein, eat stems, etc.,... (more)
My latest post on my blog was about this. I struggled with loose stool a lot on strict paleo and it subsided when I would eat an apple sauce/banana/pumpkin/broth diet. Finally I got it to go away altogether by just well...not eating paleo. I still... (more)
If I eat meat/fish with fat (with or without greens) for dinner, how long will it take untill my stomach is empty again? I haven't found nothing but information about mixed meals with starches, which might take about 4 to 5 hours to leave the... (more)
This question is not asked by me personally. I have been emailing someone back and forth trying to figure out how to fix his problem. His situation is very unique. I hope someone can offer him some advice. If you want or need to know more then let... (more)
Hi everyone, Lately I've been scaling up my fat intake by adding coconut oil, coconut butter, coconut milk, and some ghee into the mix as before I don't think I was getting enough fat into my diet (I'm wrapping up a month on paleo). While I've... (more)
Alright, I seem to have had a particularly bad idea this morning. I took a TBSP of coconut oil soon after I woke this morning, as I was really hungry and wanted to have my actual breakfast before I get on the road for a long drive today. Drank... (more)
I've been Paleo for two months now (No grains, sugar, dairy, legumes). And since day one I've eaten at least one egg a day. I buy cage/hormone free brown eggs from either Trader Joes or Whole Foods. About a week ago, I noticed a dulling painful... (more)
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.
I've been following a strict paleo diet for the last three weeks - Whole30-style, zero exceptions (so zero grains, legumes, or dairy), with very minimal fruit/sweet potato intake. Lots of things are better, but there is one strange side effect... (more)
Hey, everytime after eating bacon I get a bad stomach ache. The bacon is organic quality from my farmers market, but it tastes really salty after frying it. Could it be a problem with the salt? And when, what kind of bacon should I ask for? Kind... (more)
I started paleo three month ago and until now i haven't had any problems. Before around a week Ii started having stomach ache an hour after eating breakfast (eggs and meat). Ii decided to stop eating breakfast and there was no pain but the pain... (more)
I am out of town visiting family. Unbeknown to us until we arrived, half of the family is sick with some kind of stomach bug causing vomiting and diarrhea. For those that have consulted a doctor, the doctors have recommended a diet of items such... (more)
I didn't have a single GI issue during the first 30 days of Paleo. To be honest, I didn't feel any drastic improvement like people claim here (and I didn't cheat). Towards the end, my stress levels from work were really bad + slight depression... (more)
I am interested in achieving maximal GI tract health, and I am concerned that I have been continually re-injuring the damage done by 20 years of SAD. I am wondering what the optimal strategy is for restoring gut health as fully as... (more)
The first thing I would do is try to stop the diarrhea completely. When I was occasionally eating gluten I was having problems with diarrhea, but what works for me in a diet of just bananas, applesauce, and mashed pumpkin until you get at least... (more)
I remember reading somewhere that drinking before/after (10 minutes or so) and during the meal dilutes gastric juice PH level in the stomach and therefore contributes to lesser digestion quality. Does anyone have any more details (time, amount,... (more)
Occasionally, I would get a queasy stomach and some mild diarrhea, take some probiotics and I would be fine within an hour or two. Had a situation where both continued to get worse to the point, I started feeling weak (which happens with a weak... (more)
I recently started adding fish oil supplementation to my paleo diet but I find that every time I take it my stomach starts to burn. Not necessarily an upset stomach just more like general pain. Is this normal when you first begin taking fish oil?... (more)
Costco sells fish oil in enteric coated capsules. This means they break down until they get to your small intestine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enteric_coating). They have a kind of gross vanilla flavor to them, though.
I started the Paleo diet 15 days ago. (Eating fish but no meat). My overall energy and body feels very good on this diet. I don't find myself having any sort of side effects except from the diet with the exception of severe stomach aches. ... (more)
Hi I am curious about trying other organ meats besides liver or kidney. These 2 I have tried and, frankly, don't sit well with me. I'm curious for example does stomach taste like liver? What about intestines or tongue? These would be... (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.
I get really bad aching pain in my stomach whenever I eat eggs, broccoli and almonds. MSG bothers me too but nothing like the pain I get with these foods. No one seems to know why. I was hoping someone out there might have some insight concerning... (more)
Hi guys, I have had this problem for a year and a half now. I get a distended abdomen every time I eat or drink anything. That contents of the food/drink don't matter it is purely volume. I can say this as I have tried various elimination diets,... (more)
What about low stomach acid? Do a search on the web about it. There's a homemade test with asking soda you can try that may give you the answer or better yet talk to your doctor about it and possible he could test you.
Just started Paleo strictly... about 5 days in. I have noticed that after eating, whether it be meat or veggies I get this burn in my stomach. Thought maybe it was the fish oil I was taking but I still got it not taking the fish oil. Thinking... (more)
Hi everyone. I have a quick question. I can't seem to get rid of my stomach. I'm 5'6 130 pounds and my arms and legs have gotten thin but my stomach just won't seem to get any flatter. I do a mix of cardio and weight lifting. How much more weight... (more)
