I am about to start my second Whole30 and am wondering if anyone knows why I get extremely bad stomach aches from eating avocado, cashews, and coconut (that's the list so far, at least).
When I say extremely bad stomach aches, I mean EXTREMELY BAD STOMACH ACHES. It's not the kind of stomach ache that keeps me in the bathroom (if you know what I mean); I just have to go to bed, curl up in a ball, and pray to God the intense, piercing pain in my gut goes away ASAP. I got really sick from eating an avocado and then later from eating some cashews, so I carefully experimented with literally one coconut flake (thinking it had something to do with high-fat foods) and still got a stomach ache (albeit slightly less intense).
Someone suggested I make sure to eat protein with fat to make it easier to digest. I tried that, but had the same problem.
Since I'm supposed to have fat with every meal according to Whole30 and apparently have major sensitivity to it, what do I do if I can't eat good fat? Anyone have any advice or know what might be going on with my stomach issue? I'd love to hear from you. Thanks ahead of time!
