Stomach issues since vegetarianism
Posted by LukaThalius at 03/20/2014
Hey there! I started going vegetarian for a project for Environmental Science class, and lately I've noticed that my stomach has been cramping on and off. It will go from mild to severe cramping. My doctor said it's because I'm overweight. I thought it was because of coffee, so I nixed the coffee. It still happens. Could someone please give me advice for what to do?
You will likely lose weight on a (healthy)vegan diet, and during this process, the toxins stored in fatty tissue may cause temporary problems as they are being eliminated from the body.
Sorry to hear about your challenges. To give any meaningful advice you would have to tell us what you eat now.
Hope you'll get well soon, good luck LukaThalius :)

It can also be due to consuming lots of fiber. If that is the case then your body should adjust after a while.
I highly doubt it has anything to do with your weight. Anymore, doctors will blame anything on weight. Maybe you should try to see another doctor if your issue doesn't resolve soon.
I'm sorry to hear about your cramping issue. I hope you feel better soon.
