could be. Who knows. What are you eating exactly, so we can get a better idea of what may be causing the symptoms. i never had side effects like that when I "swiched over" but everyones different.

Why did either of you decide to become a vegetarian?

I have a friend whose doctor advised him to stop drinking alcohol, eating meat, and smoking.
He was able to stop drinkin', but he just can't give up the meat or the mary jane.
I'd say he's crazy playin' with his health like that... but I gotta admit I'd have a hard time giving up those things myself! :foreheadslap:

...and I bet you're already onto your tenth chorus of "...but where do you get your protein?" from well-meaning family/friends :wink:

I cut out meat, then fish, then egg, then dairy...over a period of about 16 years, heh heh
worked for me

"meaty" things like soy-sages, textured veg protein, tofu, falafel, wheat gluten* etc can help make the transition easier if you're used to eating a lot of meat



*but even stray dogs will start looking at you in pity if you make a habit of eating wheat gluten

ahaha yeah "where do you get your protien" ah man. Its like a rhetorical question.

Animal protien tends to accumulate in the arteries and clog them up. Protien, especially animal protien is very sticky.

Just looking at that day's worth of food.. you have a lack of green vegetables and fruits in general. You need to make sure you have all your bases covered. I'm not a vegetarian (yet) but if you are you need to make extra special care you are eating a very well balanced diet. Sounds like you have a good start but you need more fruit in there and you didn't mention what kind of salad it was.. protein is not your only consideration. Just eat fruit and vegetables in separate meals or else they will putrify in your stomach. Like eat fruits and oatmeal at breakfast and then eat the salad and beans and rice at lunch.. just use common sense. Also, nuts are your friend.. very high in good fats and protein. The key is just eating a wide variety of foods and being smart about the order you eat them in..

Say what? Would you be willing to go into a little more detail about this?

Well, it's more based on my personal experience than anything else.. and certain fruits and vegetables have different acids and enzymes so it depends on what you are mixing. But in my experience certain fruits and vegetables do not mix well together at all in the stomach. Like mixing milk and orange juice.. it just doesn't work.. at least for me. But some fruits and vegetables DO work well together so I usually just judge it on a case-by-case basis.. but as a general rule I try to avoid mixing them in the same meal to avoid unpleasant chemical reactions. Citrus fruits in particular, I have found do not tend to agree with a number of vegetables and starches and dairy products. It has to do with digestion.. and having the proper PH level in your stomach, so you don't have food rotting in there because it's not being digested properly. I don't know the science behind it, I just know what works for me and I like my digestive tract to be at zen with itself.

hi,

10 year vegan here....more as a vegetarian. first off, good job on kicking the animal products.

well, you may be experiencing some temporary effects of the detox. the biochemicals and adrenaline created by slaughter are highly addictive, but dont worry. if youre really about to snap, then take only a little something dairy as a temporary fix. it has a lot of the biochems without the full blown violence vibes.

next, try eating things you like and are used to. dont change up everything at once. eat veg stuff you normally like and sit well with you. stay away from all the processed grains and prefab foods more and go with fresh fruits, veggies fresh or steamed/curried, whole grains...try to chill on breads, flour etc....keep t simple. be suspicious of the processed stuff especially.

also to help withthe cleanse eat a lot of citrus, fresh lemon juice in water, lemonade, oranges, grapefuit etc. in no time youll be feeling better than ever before. hope this helps! :-)

and oh, yeah, drnk plenty fluids and water whenever the belly acts up, you need it for the cleansing. think about doing a liver/digestive cleanse (these use epsom salt, olive oil, lemon juice...find it on a search).

Im vegan myself; and havent been sick or gotten nearly as many stomach aches since I switched. When I was a meat eater I had crippling stomach pains weekly; which stopped when I became vegetarian. I think it just effects people in different ways and my body doesnt like meat. I cant do dairy products at all. Some people cant do gluten; and homemade whole wheat bread deffinatley has gluten.

I would eat a scrambled egg with olive oil, a toasted bagel, orange juice and non-stimulant herb tea (lots of it).

Hope you feel better. :sun:

Is it possible it's in yr head? I know scumpunks eating out of the dumpster that are (relatively) well. Just an idear. Also, i'm a vegetarian and I don't pay near enough attention to my diet to make sure I'm getting the proper nutrients, but I can't complain about terrible pains (regardless of the possible unhealthiness of my diet).

just my $0.02
