extremely bloated after eating almond butter

let me preface by explaining that I know this could be caused by over consumption, but I was just curious if there was any other cause.

Today I fasted accidentally until 3pm. When I got back to my apartment I felt to weak to cook anything and the only food I had ready to eat was a little more than half a jar of almond butter. I felt fine until about 30min afterwards and I have felt bloated ever since (it's been about 5hrs) Was it just a really stupid thing to eat that much almond butter? Oh and that's the only thing I've eaten all day

You could be right. I only offered some thoughts.

Or it could be because the ingredient is nuts, which are not easy to digest.

I stand whenever I eat more than half the jar, usually leaning over the kitchen counter with a spoon in hand.

Have you looked at the ingredients? Are you sure it's pure almond butter? And how much is a half of jar? I mean if it is a small jar like I have, that would mean maybe 1 cup. It could also be because you ate too fast because you waited too long to eat.

If I eat a few spoonfuls I'm bloated. Half a jar would kill me.

I have on multiple occasions eaten over a half a jar in one sitting.....after dinner, for a dessert. Not sure if it is the almond butter causing your bloating. I would say the more important question is why did you feel so weak?
