Does anyone else get a vague unsettled stomach/ slight nausea after a particularily fatty meal? I experience this for an unpleasant half-hour or so after eating a whole avocado, a couple of porkchops with all the fat on, 5 or more slices of bacon, etc. No reaction whatsoever from the same foods in smaller quantities. It's a bit confusing to have my body telling me it's enough, when I'm just trying to give it enough energy for my lifestyle??.

If you're just starting on eating this way it could be your entire digestion system adapting to it. Several people (both researchers and laymen) have reported this issue and that it takes up to six months to fully adapt to digesting fat (possibly also a higher amount of protein) instead of carbs. I've tried the same with tallow where I could get reflux if I had it in large quantities but now I don't really experience anything.

Sounds like a gallbladder issue. Maybe not producing enough bile to emulsify the fats. Try taking Now super enzymes or look for a enzyme supplement high in the Lipase enzyme. Enzymedica has a fat digesting product. You can also try ox bile.

I'm not a health care professional, so keep that in mind, but my good friend experienced similar symptoms as a result of having a gall bladder problem. She would eat meals high in fat content, and then swiftly feel nauseous or gassy. It might be worth looking into that as a possible cause. Gall bladder removal is laparoscopic and a swift recovery, FWIW. Here's to your health! :)
