On again off again nausea 2 weeks in?

Hi guys! I am relatively new to your ranks, very much enjoying the paleo diet so far. Have already dropped 1 1/2 pants sizes, feeling much more energetic, making positive life changes. 25 female, sedentary (desk work) with HIIT (crossfit) 1x week.

However, I keep having random small attacks of nausea sometimes when eating or after eating. They are very sudden, and last perhaps 10-15 minutes, then are gone. They are happening pretty regularly after each meal. I have been making sure to keep my meals appropriately-sized (eat until satiated, not overeating, not undereating) and have been doing three meals a day. Meal examples:

Breakfast: 2 hard boiled eggs, 2 rashers bacon, butter sauteed zucchini, sometimes 1/2 avocado (depending on hunger.)

Lunch: 6 oz pork tenderloin, large serving of steamed broccoli.

Mid-afternoon snack (if needed): 1/2 avocado or 2 hard boiled eggs.

Dinner: 6-8 oz meat, large serving veggies of some sort.

Dessert (if needed): handful of strawberries or blackberries.

I allow myself small cheats, such as a tiny bit of honey and cream in my tea once a day or so, the occasional glass of wine with dinner every few days. I know, I know, stick to the 30 days. I'm planning on re-starting on Sunday and going strict for 30 days solid.

Why the nausea? Halp!

One way used often is to limit yourself to a small list of foods for a short while--you may need to experiment to verify that your nausea goes away with these foods. Then, every few days add one food to see how you react. This approach will help you verify which food or group of foods is your problem. Good luck!

are you keeping a food diary? maybe its one food or food group that causes it?

I ran into the same issue at first, and it became even more pronounced when I began to eat a larger breakfast (4 eggs, 4 slices bacon, and a leafy green) but it went away after about two weeks. I didn't find a fix, my body just became acclimated and it's no not an issue for me.

I'm sorry I don't have anything other than that to offer.
