Started 3/31: on day 3, nausea started around lunch- is it bad to skip meals?


Recommended Posts

I started 3/31. My tummy has been gassy/"girgly"/unsettled/full feeling on and off since night 1. I haven't had any diarrhea or anything.


I may have eaten too much fruit night 1 and maybe at lunch on day 2. And perhaps too many sweet potatoes from the get go... So night 2, I made sure to not have either.


Today (day 3) I ate 3 eggs, green beans, cashews, 1/2 banana, and 1/2 an apple for breakfast. After bodypump and pilates, that ended at 1:15, I should've been ready to eat lunch but I have been extremely nauseated and a headache has set in. I feel like I'm going to blow chunks at any minute. There's no way I can eat. 


1. Could my body just need time to digest? (I mean, I have been eating more densely than usual (at   some meals) since I began and I'm sure my "Am I full?" judgement is still adjusting.) 


2. Or is this just the hangover?


Either way, is it okay to skip meals?

If you are nauseous, you may not be digesting food properly. It would be a good idea to take digestive enzymes for a while to support digestion while your gut bacteria grows to the place it needs to be. Read this article for more on the topic: http://whole9life.com/2012/09/digestive-enzymes-101/


You might also try avoiding nuts completely because they can be hard on digestion. 


Skipping meals can degrade your Whole30 experience, but I understand that eating while nauseous is a problem. Try to get some digestive enzymes soon and see if it helps. Most people who benefit should think in terms of using the enzymes for a month or so. If you don't experience an improvement after a week, then the problem might be something else.

I have thrown up and still feel bad :/

The only thing I have eaten out of the norm is whole eggs, but I used to use about 1 whole to 2 whites. The only big thing I've had to eliminate is plain Greek yogurt with fresh fruit. I hope it's not a digestion problem. I think I have a stomache bug. Thank you for the enzyme advice, it seems beneficial either way!
