Okay, the last 2-3 weeks I've been slowly converting to a plant based diet..
I lost my first 30lbs eating a low calorie standard american diet with pretty much rarely eating any veggies or fruits. Lots of frozen foods, fast food, etc.
So my typical day looks like now:
Breakfast: Oatmeal w/ 1 packet stevia & 1 tablespoon almond butter
Lunch: Green Smoothie (2 handfuls spinach or kale, 1 banana, 1/2 orange, 1/2 cup frozen fruit)
Snack: 1 or 2 pieces of various fruit & 1 cup almond milk
Dinner: Lentil Salad Wrap (whole wheat tortilla, lentils, mashed avocado, chopped pickle, mustard, chopped peppers, mixed chopped lettuces ontop)
So, right around I started the switch I've had these horrible gas pains up my bum?? Every time I google it I get results for endometriosis and various things. It really hurts to pass gas (I feel like I am going to pass out) and I seem to have A LOT of it. I read one site that said it's trapped, built up gas can cause shooting pains.
I feel better once I've "eliminated".. but every few days the pain comes back.
I am wondering if it's the almond milk since I gave up dairy. So I am going to cut it out and see if that's it.
It's just frustrating that I am eating healthier than I ever have in my life and I've never been in so much pain!
I am just wondering if could also be my body is just not use to all the fiber? I went from never eating a vegetable to eating mostly veggies & grains. And if that's the case what am I suppose to do? I drink a ton of water.. I fill up quart size mason jars through out the day.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
