Vegan / Vegetarian Discussion - All Things Veg*n Forum

Author Avatar

I'm a new member of this community, and I've been reading a lot of topics around here lately. I've recently went vegan (mostly for what I'd call ethical reasons) after being vegetarian for almost two years. I feel really well, especially physically. My skin looks a lot brighter and clearer already. However, I've been suffering from stomachaches. I read that is normal in the beginning because your body is getting used to the increased amount of fibers in your diet.
Is that true? Has anyone here ever went through the same? How long did the problem last?

Thank you very much.

    Not unusual.

    But keep in mind that potato chips and soda pop can be vegan.

    A healthy diet consists of eating healthy foods in healthy amounts, and as much raw as is practical.

    Glad to have you on board!

    Thank you for your response.

    Yes, I'll keep that in mind. I've been eating very healthy, but my stomach is still a bit weird, eek.
