Tomi - I also experienced this huge bloated full tummy when I first started high fat last year. My weight also went up, but then it went down. Sadly soon after I started a sugar/grain binge....so the scale didn't continue down. I think you really need to give this a few weeks.
I have been feeling great lately - energy to burn etc.... however last night I had a piece of battered fish. Boy did I have a bad night. Also this morning my gut is huge !!!!! I am wanting to blame the fish batter, and common sence tells me it must be this - but really?
