    Stomach pain after eating

    Shop Now
    Hi All,

    I have been paleo since Dec 2010 and nothing really changed (I stopped getting a runny nose all the time though!). Recently though (the past 1-2 months) I have been experiencing stomach pain and bloating much worse than ever. I can't work it out so was looking for your help!

    I think I've ruled out a lactose intolerance, I haven't had any dairy for over two days and still have symptoms and in the past I drank around 6 pints of whole milk a day for about 5 months with no problems.

    This has been my diet over the past few days (typical of the past 2.5 years)...

    7:30
    Cheese omelette and Rooibos tea with almond milk
    Pear, raspberries and clotted cream

    Cheese?? All the meals in which you had cheese you are sick and bloated.

    I've been primal for 18months. I feel bloated and pain in my gut from consuming these items too many days in a row:
    Eggs
    Coconut milk
    Avocados

    The coconut milk has been worse though. I didn't have any for over a week, try some on paleo granola, bam. Sharp gut pain. I haven't touched it since. No issues with eggs and avos if I eat every other day. I think I've gain some sort of intolerance for them. Not uncommon from my research

    Totally cut out all dairy (yes, includes cream and cheese!) and go easy on the nuts.

    Thanks for the replies. Turquoisepassion, some kind of cheese/diary seems to be before most cases and Labmonkey coconut milk and eggs seem to be common as well!

    I'm sensitive to 50% of my diet haha!

    Reallygravity, until I typed all that I didn't realise how much almond I've been eating as well as dairy!

    So here's a bit of an update. I decided that the seeds etc where the newest thing to my diet so I cut them out last week. Things have been going a little better with less bloating however...

    This morning I had coconut flour pancakes with fried banana and bacon and bam my stomach was like a balloon minutes after!

    Now i'm stuck, i'm fine after a cheese omelette so I'm guessing it isn't the cheese or eggs.
    I've never had a problem with eating bananas.
    I didn't have bacon all last week and had bloating so it mustn't be that.
    I eat raw coconut and don't have any bother.

    The only thing out of the ordinary was coconut flour but that wouldn't explain all the other occasions unless it was a fibre problem maybe??

    Thanks again,

    Gary

    I would cut all eggs, nuts, nightshades, and dairy for two weeks to see if it helps. Coconut flour causes issues for lots of people as well. If you are good at two weeks, then try adding them in one at a time.

    Other things to look in to: FODMAPS sensitivity, probiotics, and low stomach acid.
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    I've found that coconut flour really bloats me because it has a lot of fiber and is hard on my stomach.

    I now use regular gluten-free flour the rare times I want a baked good (once every 1-2 months or so).

    Maybe you will do better with pancakes made with just bananas and eggs? There are recipes with just those 2 ingredients on the web.

    Part of it could be due to the frequency at which you eat. People talk about the weightloss, body composition, and autophagey benefits of IFing, but one major advantage to IFing in my experience has been almost no feeling of bloating. Even AFTER my one HUGE meal of the day!

    On days I don't IF, even when everything I eat is 100% primal, I feel a bit bogged down and bloated. Just my experience though, so take it for what it's worth (not bloody damned much).
