Why is my stomach so upset?

Why is my stomach so upset? I have eaten like crap my whole life. I have paid no attention to calories, fat, or my food choices. I now have been watching calories and what I eat, trying to eat healthy and lose weight but every day lately my stomach hurts so bad. I have loose stools, stomach pain, and I have to go NOW when I go to the bathroom. It really is an unpleasant side effect to losing weight. Anyone know why?

It sounds like you may want to go see your doctor. Maybe you have a food allergy? IBS? ?? I don't think anyone on PT is going to be able to diagnose you. Sorry.

Sounds like you may have added too much fiber too fast. I did a residential diet program for a week, and we were on 35g of fiber a day. I had already been getting 20g, so the side effects weren't too bad for me, but people who've been "eating crap" their whole lives generally get maybe 10g a day. That's a pretty dramatic change for your intestines to accommodate, and it takes time to clear all the, ahem, backlog and establish a new normal. They were constantly going to the bathroom, had mild stomach cramping and gas issues.

Alternatively, have you added something to your diet that you hardly ate before, that maybe you're allergic to? Like seafood or dairy? Something to think about anyway.

I would agree with the above comments. It may be a good idea to go see a doctor. Mabe since your body has been digesting "crap" and with you eating good food now, that mabe a food allergy or intestinal issue like IBS needs to be considered. Good Luck

FYI, IBS is usually stress-related, not diet-induced...

6:14: That's a myth. IBS is related to more than just stress. Certain foods act as major triggers. For me, fried and oily foods give me the worst tummyache in the world.

It's kind of a mystery condition at the moment with everyone's case being very different than the next person's. That's why there's no "cure."

OP comments here...

OP here.... I am on weight watchers. I have been eating limited sweets, mostly the lean cuisine or ww packaged foods, turkey burgers, stuff like that. Nothing out of the ordinary. Veggies...
It's not pain per say, it's just that I have to go and I have to go NOW feeling of stomach upset. I don't think that I have any food allergies. It is stuff I have eaten before. I just think my body is used to junk. I guess I was just wondering if eating healthier caused anyone else to have an upset tummy too! :)

Thanks guys for the feedback.

When I've been really good on my diet, eating everything healthy, etc., and then I give in and have something overly greasy or sweet, my stomach does that too. So maybe it's just getting used to the healthy foods. If it doesn't go away in a few days, though, a doctor's visit sure couldn't hurt!

I hadd a similar onset of stomach issues 5 years ago after i started improving my eating habits. i was diagnosed with IBS which is kind of a non-diagnosis. i've learned to deal with it since then and things have significantly improved. exercise is probably the biggest help- i find regular cardio hleps a lot. fiber and enzymes can also help- yogurt with acidophilus. if you buy acidophilus in pill form look for refrigerated bottles.

With the Super Bowl and Sochi Olympics rapidly approaching, gangsters are seeing dollar signs Wholesale Jerseys 2016 .Sophisticated crime rings are developing pop-up e-marketplaces and sourcing cheap apparel from abroad, readying to profit millions of dollars selling counterfeit goods to unsuspecting deal hunters Stitched NFL Patch.More than $17 million worth of Super Bowl 2013 merchandise -- from fake jerseys, hats and jackets to tickets and other souvenirs -- was seized last year, according to U.S. Immigration and Customers Enforcement.

While the NFL has forced the shutdown of more than 2,500 websites offering counterfeit team merchandise
  • Movie Football
  • , the federal government arrested a dozen people ahead of this year's Super Bowl and the Sochi Organizing Committee pledged to implement a more effective response to the theft of licensed Olympic gear
  • Winnipeg Blue Bombers Jersey
  • , the hill is steep.Without further consumer awareness, defeat is like a large-scale game of whack-a-mole, said David Sugden, an attorney specializing in grey markets at Call & Jensen.“Whenever there’s demand for anything --whether it is sports memorabilia or airplane parts -- you’re going to find there’s an effort from dishonest entrepreneurs to sell dishonest products,” he said.Brands may succeed in shutting down one
  • Atlanta Falcons Jersey
  • , but two more are always waiting in the wings.Traditional crime rings are attracted to the ease of importing apparel over, say, drugs and narcotics, and can quickly develop a website for the sale of illicit merchandise
  • Baltimore ravens Jersey
  • . The sites can also be written in such a way that the actual ring leaders are difficult to prosecute.

    And it's extremely lucrative
  • Indianapolis Colts Jersey
  • . Despite the fact that some of these counterfeited products are indeed far superior to their legitimate counterparts, thieves oftentimes price them in the same ballpark so as to maintain the ruse that the products being purchased are real
  • Buffalo Bills Jersey
  • .“It allows you to maintain the margins of legitimate goods, making it an extremely attractive business with a very low barrier to entry,” said Fred Feldman, chief marketing officer of brand protection firm MarkMonitor
  • Chicago Bears Jersey
  • , which works with the NFL.It’s also easier to fool a shopper online, whereas consumers tend to be more cautious of a random man selling t-shirts out of the back of his truck in the rear of the stadium parking lot.

    “Prior to Internet commerce
  • Cincinnati Bengals Jersey
  • , counterfeiters were often outside of stadiums or in flea markets or just on city streets,” said Sugden. “That kind of environment suggests to a reasonable consumer that this stuff probably is not authentic.”

    Of course, some shoppers looking for
  • Cleveland Browns Jersey
  • a deal are willing to sacrifice the quality. In fact, a MarkMonitor survey from 2012 found that these deal hunters are 20 times more likely to buy counterfeit than regular consumers.

    “Consumers have become more price sensitive and understand that one of the powers of the Internet is to compare and contrast prices to find the best deal NFL ,” Feldman said.

    With millions of revenue on the line, that has become a nightmare for brand owners.

    Kisha, along with client services director Lisa Leone and production manager Cathi Christopher Wholesale Jerseys 2016 , were confined to a 10-by-10-foot room backstage at the Auditorium Theatre, working with two heat-press machines and thousands of names on clear film in folders

  • Oakland Raiders Jersey
  • on the back — to account for a team having an unlikely three first-round picks.

    Until 2014, they brought only four jerseys per team but in 2013, the Minnesota Vikings traded up and had three first-round draft picks, which meant six jerseys. When the Vikings made their move
