Well, I wanted to just check in and give you guys an update. I have been staying away from veggies and nuts. I was able to eat apples without any problems. Stomach has been fine with this type of arrangement.

I recently added a few almonds back in without any problems, as long as it's only about 3 or 4 at a time. So, I am slowly recovering. Haven't been brave enough to try some veggies, but will here soon.

I am going to write this off as a withdrawl from sugar and grians. Body freaked out.

I also, have lost about 22 pounds since I started. It has been mostly fat as my strength has not decreased. I am coming out on the other end of the switching from burning sugar to fat and things are definitely improving.

Thanks for all your help.

Be vigilant with what you know you need to do.

Good job taking care of yourself.

Happy ending! Good on you Jim for being able to stay away from veggies and nuts and grats on dropping the 22 pounds of mostly fat.

I feel privileged to be on the same boards as Garrett and MOD and the other experts at PM.

Thanks Alicia. If only more of my patients at least did the exercise thing, like nearly everybody here my life would be so much easier.

I much prefer to "tweak" athletic folks than to try to overhaul poor-diet couch potatoes.

Default in the same boat

I have this same problem with veggies when eaten on large amounts. I typically have 5-7 "servings" at one meal. I have tried the beano and it works sometimes, but I refrain from taking it daily if possible. I have tried probiotics, but saw no significant benefit; would digestive enzymes be the way to go?

I hate that I can feel so bad after eating something so healthy. And I love my veggies, so I've just been dealing with it...

All veggies, or particular ones? Do you eat certain veggies on a very consistent basis? Does raw vs. cooked make any difference?

Cooked or raw, doesn't matter. Notice it more with eggplant than anything else, but it happens with everything. I eat a large raw salad every night with red leaf lettuce, tomato, cucumber, mushroom, red onion and artichoke. I eat cooked veggies with my protein and fat in addition to the raw salad. I cut broccoli about a year ago because the bloating was pretty significant, but then I would eat an entire head of broccoli in one sitting

Try no nightshades. No tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, eggplant, paprika. My guess is that one or more of these is present in nearly every meal you eat.

Eggplant and potato have the most solanine and alpha-chaconine, notorious for causing nausea and vomiting.

Eating the same foods every day is a sure-fire way to create food sensitivities/allergies, bloating is one of the "nicer" early warning signs.

So, I'd start with avoiding the nightshades for a month and not eating any particular veggie more than 3-4 times in a week. The best approach might involve you not eating any of your "regular" veggies for a month, and finding substitutes now.

Tomatoes may be the hardest on that list to give up, but I'll try it for one month and see how I feel. I am a creature of habit, but always willing to try new things. On with my journey to vegetable variety...
