  • Feeling sick after having heaps fatty meal

    Hey guys and girls,

    I have been 100% Primal for well 4 - 6 months now, I haven't feel the buzz like everyone else, I eat alot of beef, chicken, pork (bacon MMMMmmMMM), and Salads and vegies, plus i add coconut to all of my meals to get the coconut flavour. This doesn't happen all the time, but when i have a meal that has heaps of fat I feel sick and like my stomach is uneasy, and have to go the toilet. Can anyone think of any reason this may happen?

    I don't have dairy, i drink 2 cups of coffee in the morning, white tea the rest of the day with glasses of water as well. I like to add mustard and Tomatoe Sauce. I have 6 fish oil tablets a day and 1 multivitimin. I need to pick up some magnesium but haven't had that over a month now. I mostly grill on the BBQ, or fry in a pan with coconut oil of course. I don't know what other information i need to tell you, my fatloss is not going anywhere, which is kinda making me depressed, cause i really want to get my abs :S

    I am 160cm, 66Kg , don't know how much body fat i have, i just look at the mirror and see my waist which is chunky, everything else is starting to look good of course.

    For fitness i do weights 3 x weeks and sprint 2 x a week if i feel like it, I work in I.T. and walk around a big school a little bit. ummm. if there is any other information you require just ask me, I just want to fix this, cause i know if it works on all of you, I must be doing something wrong

    Thanks for any advise you wonderful people could give me.

    I'm no expert but you might not be digesting the fats properly because you aren't producing enough bile or are lacking digestive enzymes or something. large amounts of medium chain triglycerides (like in coconut oil) does cause stomach upsets in some people but I'm not sure why. I also hear mixing animal fats can make your body respond in a funny way (probably an old wives tale). Maybe you need to gradually increase the amount of fat instead of having loads in one go?

            Nothing wrong with trying a diet that is 50-60% fat, 20-25% protein and 20-25% carbs. Some people might do better on that compared to 60-70% fat, 20-25% protein and 5-10% carbs. Replace fats with fruits like berries and cherries, yams, squash and see how you feel. You can still lose weight even with higher carbs, especially if you eat lean gains model with daily medium sized fast (16 hours).

              Does anyone else think the 6 fish oil tablets are a bit excessive?

                all fish oil tablets are not created equal

                I am plowing through a bottle right now that is only 200mg per capsule, so i take 4-6

                  True and false.

                  True, they are not created the same. They all have different ratios of EPA/DHA - though the standard basic ratio is 180mg epa and 120 mg dha per 1000 mg oil.....and note that this does not mirror the ratios that occur in nature.

                  False, they ARE created the same: It's important to note that they hype over 'highly purified' and 'free of toxins' is absolutely that - hype. All fish body oils availalbe on the market for human consumption are molecularly distilled and free of toxins.

                  There are a couple of rare exceptions of high end wild salmon oils (which don't need to be purified) and fermented cod liver oils (that are disgusting and have too much A to be used).

                  But don't buy the hype over carlson or nordic naturals or anything else that's costing a fortune. The key factors are dha:epa ratio (slightly to significantly more dha is biologically appropriate) and buying from a source that has a VERY high turnover to insure fresh product.

                    Good point, I just thought it might be something to ask considering the rest of his diet looks good.

                    Darthash: how many mg are in your tablets?

                    Could someone be experiencing stomach issues if taking too much fish oil? I have no idea on this....

                      My day looks like this:

                      Breakfast: coffee without milk, 4 peices of bacon, 3 eggs cooked in coconut oil.
                      Lunch: Steak, Avocado, Rocket lettuce, Tomatoe, Onion, Capsicum, and 2 table spoons of coconut oil
                      Dinner: 3 Italian sausages (grain and all crap free) half cup of brocolli, half cup of colliflower and 2 table spoons of Coconut oil.

                      Fish oil I am taking 2 capsules three times a day, and they are:

                      1020 mg
                      EPA: 300 mg
                      DHA: 200 mg

                        I feel like that too. Some days I don't even want to look at a piece of meat. Had a chicken thigh/leg with dinner last night and yuck. My stomach was upset for at least an hour. I forgot my supplements yesterday too, so I know that wasn't the issue. I don't know what the problem is but you are not alone.

                          I would suggest digestive enzymes. You seem to be eating a lot of coconut oil which may be driving your calorie count up. I do not add gobs and gobs of fat to my food. I do eat eggs fried in butter, fatty meat, avocado, etc... but only use the amount of coconut oil or other fats normal for cooking, and my fat percentages are high.

                              Digestive enzymes should be in the supplement section of the store, no prescription. There are two kinds of digestive aids, one with HCl, one without (acid) to help boost your digestive acids. If you have a very sensitive stomach, you will want to test out the HCl ones. Good luck with this.
