If I push myself really, really hard, I'll feel sick after working out. I'm doing P90X and I've cried three times! One time was a total meltdown - hee hee. One time I worked out with a trainer and almost passed out. It's your body's way of telling you to STOP! I think it's pretty normal and will dissipate as your fitness level improves. Eating enough helps too. :)

Agree with all the below - also if I have caffeine too close to my workout it can make me feel sick.

SHAWNNASGIRL,

I agree with Coach Nancy. Are you drinking enough water before, during and after your workouts ? Feeling nauseous after a workout is a sign of dehydration. It's also a sign of low blood sugar. When do you workout ? if you're working out first thing in the morning in a starved state, that's no good. You need to eat a little something prior to your workout to keep your blood sugar levels stable. When your blood sugar crashes, that can cause dizzy spells and nausea too.

Another possible cause is low blood pressure. Have you ever had your blood pressure checked ? You might want to see your doctor and have it checked, just to be safe.

I like what coach nancy wrote. The only time I have felt nauseated when I work out is either when I did not eat, or just ate. You need to give your food time to digest. Also, it is hard on your body to work on an empty stomach. Heat and water are also factors, just like Coach Nancy mentioned.

SHAWNNASGIRL,

Are you eating enough calories? How close to working out are you eating? Are you working out too intensely? How's your hydration?

I just started working out for the first time a week ago & I'm just wondering why every single time I go work out, afterwards I feel like I'm going to throw up, I'm lightheaded & way overheated? I've been doing the treadmill & I'm only about 30 lbs overweight. I consider myself semihealthy, our family has been going on walks before this soI'm healthy I just don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Thanks for the advice
