A google search led me to every possible opinion under the sun on this one. Some say it's great if you have the energy, some say you will lose muscle and strength. What's the deal? I felt great doing my 30 mins (including warmup etc) on the... (more)
I have just started week 5 of following a strict paleo diet and I am still having some stomach issues. Before I started eating paleo I was experiencing gurgling in my stomach constantly and I am still having those same issues after I eat. What's... (more)
ok so this is a gross question i have never been able to voluntarily burp and i very rarely do on accident (and it is always tiny). after i eat or drink, i usually have to gag myself a while later to let gas escape from my stomach. i am always... (more)
Unlike some folks here, I didn't start paleo because of digestive problems. However, since beginning about a month ago, I am having discomfort in my belly after eating. I was vegan for 5 years prior, and vegetarian for 8 total, so the biggest... (more)
After 7 weeks of strict paleo (apart from 1 packet of quavers) I had a meal with friends last night and I ate non-paleo. 4 courses and we didn't finish eating till gone 10pm. All night I have kept waking up, feeling wobbly/shaky, very... (more)

Dear Sirs, Some may consider me to be lacking knowledge on this subject however I wish to ask whether sweetcorn is considered to be "paleo"? I would also like to ask if anybody else has experienced stomach problems with regards to consuming... (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)
I've been low carb Primal (paleo plus cream and cheese, and 50g or less of carbs) for a few weeks. Prior to that, I was mostly WAPF, with some sugar. I've been feeling dizzy and lightheaded after I eat. Usually within 5 minutes of eating. I'm... (more)
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.
A friend of mine swears by this stuff, Equalactin, its actually a laxative, but on the box it clearly says its for Nervous stomach and used for IBS to restore the water balance in the bowels to combat both loose bowels and constipation. She... (more)
Hiiiii, So I've recently been introduced to the wodners of seeds (like the munchy seeds and nut doctor brands) and I've fallen madly in love. Only problem being, I've not had... ahem... my usual movements since I've started eating them. I know... (more)
Yeah, I'm sorry to say, but seeds do not differ greatly from grains with respect to digestibility; they're rather harsh on the intestines. If you're incapable of limiting them to a handful as a snack, it's probably best to avoid them altogether. I... (more)
concerning Ayers comment a while back, and I know someone asked this question before with no real answer, regarding betaine-hcl as a useful method to increase stomach acid. his comment was At the link that you cite, they were advocating adding a... (more)
In the past this has only been a tell-tale sign of glutening (I am Celiac), but I have been cooking all my own meals for the past week or so, so I am confident this isn't the case. Has anyone else experienced this? My diet has consisted... (more)
I unfortunately had to start taking antibiotics a few days ago for an infection in my toe. I held off as long as I could and tried to use some natural things to get rid of it but it just got worse. The antibiotics are sure doing a number on my... (more)
I felt fine this morning. Great even. I cooked up some grass-fed liver from my local farmer and it sat like a rock in my stomach. A half hour later, I was sweating and running to the bathroom. My stomach is in knots and I feel miserable. What... (more)
Anyone tried Prescript-Assist? My nutritionist told me to buy it and take every other day for symptoms of my celiac and colitis. It has been great! I have also started taking entocort (which I am not thrilled with), drinking lots of bone broth,... (more)
hubby and I were ...uh ahem ... enjoying some coconut oil in the bedroom,... I maybe ingested 1/2 a tablespoon of straight high quality oil. 5 mins later my stomach was rumbling like I just drank a cup of milk (latose intolerant). Then I realized... (more)
I've been strict paleo for a month now. This past weekend I had some friends in from out of town and we ate some sushi one night, and Mexican food the next... Three days later, I have a burning sensation that goes from the back of my throat to my... (more)
Hi all, after reading Chris Kessner's post on Kefir, I thought I would try the Organic Lactose Free kind I found at Whole Foods. I was wondering what kind of experiences you have had with it. It's only been two days but my stomach has been... (more)
I have severe stomach pain two hours after eating. My recent food history is: I removed refined sugar from my diet two months ago. I then bought a breadmaker and flour mill and have since been making my own whole wheat bread. (love it) Then I... (more)
My daughter has had problems with too much acid production in her stomach since she was very little. When she was 4 and 5 she would complain about tummy aches. I thought that she was using it as an excuse to not eat food that she didn't like. ... (more)
Hello, I've been eating primal/paleo since around Thanksgiving (7 weeks). I tried paleo in March of last year but that didn't last long. I've gone from weighing 225lbs down to 205lbs which I'm pretty pumped about. I seem to have more energy,... (more)
Maybe it would help to eat more live sauerkraut, yogurt and pickles and skip some of the nuts for awhile. Sounds like your intestinal bacteria are confused right now!
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)
