Eating greasy, fried or spicy foods can cause indigestion as well as eating too fast. Caffeine can aslo cause it or even stomach inflammation. If this problem becomes worse please see your doctor///he may prescribe a proton pump inhibitor or Histamine (H-2) blocker which can be effective in the treatment of indigestion

A statement like "fat doesn't cause indigestion" is pretty unfair. I can no longer tolerate fat after having my gall bladder removed. Even a reasonable amount of fat makes me very uncomfortable for several hours. I was reminded of this yesterday when I put a whole tablespoon of olive oil on my food. I won't be doing that again!

Fat can most certainly cause indigestion. In my experience, it got worse as I lost weight because the weight loss is what was causing the gall bladder disease in the first place. (Have you ever been checked for gallstones? Discomfort after eating a fatty meal is one of the best indicators of gallstones.)

Thanks Becky & everyone for the replies/advice/suggestions.

I love to learn these things.

I had tasted a minty flavor on my tongue.. so I googled that.. and reflux/indigestion came up in my search.. and my stomach was throwing fits there for a little while. And I saw mentioned that high fat intake could be related somewhere and thought back to my breakfast as it was the only thing I'd eaten thus far in the day.

I don't get indigestion often, but I don't often eat 21g of fat in one meal either.

Thanks again.

Becky, you gave a very wise and well-informed reply. Thank you for your input

Fat intake is a very indvidualized thing regarding amount and tolerance. Yes, it could bring about indigestion in some people. Also folks who have more body fat (especially in the abdominal area) are more prone to indigestion. As one loses weight the indigestion gets better.

High fat does not cause indigestion. My breakfast had 43 grams, and my lunch and dinner 63 grams each, and I never have indigestion. If you think it was the avocado, test that hypothesis out, by having it a few times over the next few weeks, and see if that is true. Maybe avocados just don't agree with you. I tried them, and didn't like the flavor.

half an avocado, 1 whole egg + egg whites, & a little cheddar cheese...

seemed like a good idea at the time. after putting it in the tracker though.. hmmm.. that was a lot of fat. and now.. not seeming like a good idea anymore.

I know.. it was the avocado.

I think if I ate that much fat in the morning I probably wouldn't feel so hot either. But, I don't eat hardly anything in the morning in general.

What did you have for breakfast that was 21 grams of fat?

Is 21g of fat for breakfast too much fat.. I mean would that amount cause indigestion?

If so.. I'm never eating what I ate for breakfast again. LOL.
