Default Weight Loss Aches and Pains!!

I've noticed that my gait is completely different. So much so that my back has been killing me!!!! I'm going to see the chiropractor tomorrow and get an adjustment and a massage.

Since loosing weight has anyone else noticed major aches and pains as your muscles and joints adjust to carrying less?

Sorry...mine were all there before I lost weight. I'm just more willing to work on the problems now. I've been in Physical therapy seriously since April. I started some PT exercises through the chiropractor in January.

I would guess it is just about your posture and the supporting muscles.

I haven't had much for back pains, but my legs have for some reason felt a difference. Haven't been doing anything more than usual other than being on IP and holy cow! my legs sure are feeling it. All kinds of aches and pains!

I've read that whey protein can cause an autoimmune response in some people that causes arthritis type pain. It can also cause blackheads or acne.

I got off IP and all whey protein containing foods. When I changed to a more vegan diet (but, not vegan because I eat fish, poultry, and meat just not cow or any cow product), I noticed pain subsiding in 2-3 days. After a week my complexion cleared up and the pain was nearly gone. I wish I could get back on IP because I can't seem to drop weight any other way but, I couldn't deal with the pain either. I'm trying a plant based protein called, Vega One and some others. I've had an incredible energy boost one month after changing my nutrition. Last week I cycled 120 miles over 4 days (Monday 50 miles), swam laps for an hour without stopping and road horses twice during the week. Only problem is I also blew it by drinking wine 4 nights and I've gained 5 lbs!!

I wish I could do IP but, I'm going to keep trying to stick to the alternate program I've devised using vegetarian based protein and eating 2 c. Veggies for lunch and dinner.

Yes. Weight loss is sore...a little.

Several years ago I was seeing a physical therapist and she happened to mention to me one day that quick weight loss can be hard on your joints. I wish I had asked her more details about that at the time. I since have tried to research that on my own and have turned up nothing. All I can tell you from personal experience, though, is that my joints loved the quick weight loss.

Glad you brought this up because yes I definitely have some aches and pains and was going to post about this today. My shoulders feel sore at times and so does my back. Also, I was touching my face the other day and my jaw was tender...weird. It comes and goes for me. Sometimes it's annoying and other times I don't notice. Either way, it's not terrible but not great either.

Use a 10x mirror to see if your pores are clogged. If so, read my post above about whey protein.
