nauseated after eating

Answered on August 19, 2014

So, this is not really a paleo related question, but maybe someone knows the answer. I was a vegetarian my whole life, i started paleo 6 weeks ago and eating meat two weeks ago, started with chicken and yesterday first time beef. I noticed i get nauseous for about two hours afterwards. When I think about it, I'm always feeling sick after eating a full meal, also before paleo, meat made it a little worse. So I think I'm used to it, it's normal for me. I mentioned it here before and someone said maybe a lack of enzymes. Never thought of that,

What can i eat to change this? Does anyone have more information about it? Thanks!

hahaha I just meant that I don't eat too much, Sess asked. I eat what I want to, I don't care what other people think. I don't think I eat not enough, I think most people eat way too much. So I definitively don't overeat myself during a meal, but still get nauseated

OMG, people tell you you don't eat enough, and your subconscious served that right up to you huh? F! what 'people say' especially regarding how much you eat. You figure out how much you want to eat, and then eat it. Eat a ton, maybe feel nauseas, maybe get a little fat, maybe have digestion issues, maybe feel guilty. Eat a little, maybe lose some fat, have no digestion issues, feel like a million dollars. With 90% of America being fat slobs, I wouldn't put too much faith in anyone saying 'you don't eat '.

Yes that could have been, but I Think I'm sure I'm not eating too much, people always tell me to eat more, that I don't eat enough (I do that because I get nauseated)

Are you sure you aren't just eating too much?

Sounds to me like poor stomach acid production, which is why meat can really turn off some vegans. They just can't digest it. Don't bother with an enzyme complex (those digestive enzymes are produced by the pancreas and will probably not survive the stomach) ...use a combo of Betaine hydrochloride( HCl) and pepsin, working upwards from one tablet at each meal. When you've reached the optimal dosage for you, you will feel a warming sensation in your chest. This signals you've taken a little more than you need, and so next meal you decrease by one tablet. I've seen clients who needed to take up to 20 tablets a day spread out between 3 meals. Some don't need as much. You should also increase your use of things like lemon juice, raw apple cider vinegar and bitter green herbs. All support stomach acid and bile production.

I lived with similar problems. For me, the solution was healing my gut. Lots of bone broth, lots of probiotic rich drinks (kombucha, water kefir, dairy kefir). As long as I make sure I am keeping my gut healthy, my reflux, nausea, and indigestion seem to be much better.

I was veg*n for 14 years before going Paleo seven weeks ago and have certainly experienced something like this. I felt fine while eating vegan food but got nauseous after eating meat. A lot of it has been psychological for me, but beef gave my body a reaction. I've had to work up to it.. eggs are easily digestible, so I've started there. Have you considered eating six small meals instead of 3 big ones? Do you think that would help? This is a shock to the body when you've gone the majority of your life without meat.

I have that same problem with red meat. I feel extremely full after eating it, and not in a good way. I also tend to get really tired and groggy after I eat it. I've started taking a papaya based supplment that has papain, amylase and protease.

Try some digestive enzymes. Robb Wolf frequently recommends Now Foods Super Enzymes.
