Lightheadedness from trouble digesting meats?

I've been on Paleo diet for 3 months and for past two months have been lightheaded and having trouble digesting. Dry heaves sometimes after lunch, feel the need to burp but can't. I'm thinking that I should cut back even more on meat and go more veggie carb. Honestly I felt so much better when I was eating my native Greek diet. In the meantime I'm overdosing on digestive enzymes and HCL. Seems to give some relief from Lightheadedness. BTW: my blood work,physical are great and don't account for light headedness.

I get that if I eat too much lean protein at once, what kind of meat and how much are you eating for lunch? I've found that a good plate for me has some meat, something green, a cooked root vegetable, and something fermented. If you feel like you are having trouble digesting well at lunchtime you could also try a bigger breakfast and dinner, with some nuts and fruit in the middle of day for a snack.

do you consume dairy? What do you eat on meals that give you dry heaves? or is it always?

The Greek diet follows many of the paleo principals.

The primary "bread" that is eaten is sprouted barley loaf and the sprouted, unleavened flat breads. If you are actually sprouting and rolling your own breads, then you can probably continue to do that with minimal affect on your health.

Legumes are traditionally soaked and sprouted or fermented which really helps reduce the toxic nature of legumes.

The diet is very high in fat, especially O3 - fish, shellfish, snails, Also poultry, lamb and goats which are all good eats.

Lots of nuts

Lots of vegetables, and especially herbs (which are amazing)

Tree fruits.

What part of the native Greek diet did you have to give up to go Paleo?
