I agree that is may be the switch to healthy good but keep in everyone is different and maybe that is only part of the problem. Personally, if I do not eat a proper breakfast or if I do not eat enough at some point throughout the day, I end up feeling nauseous during the late afternoon. That is usually accompanied by some degree of a headache as well. My best advice is to listen to your body, and perhaps one day see if eating more calories helps, and another day try eating less "healthy" foods. Hope you feel better!

It's never too late to succeed.

This is actually a problem I have a bit of familiarity yet. My brother for his entire life has eaten nothing but hot dogs, pepperoni, potato pancakes, french fries, bacon, chicken nuggets and the occasional sweet corn on the cob. If he tries eating anything else he vomits. We have on occasion managed to get him to keep something else down, but it's not easy. My suggestion is to add "healthy" foods back in slowly. Don't over do yourself and get used to one before you start combining that with another. It might take your body a while to adjust to eating healthy. I would try and stick with some of your "healthier" normal food choices while making this transition of course.

I don't really care for a lot of the "healthy" foods you should eat. However, my tastes buds are changing the more I eat these foods, and I am actually starting to "crave" these foods that are good for me..more fruits and veggies to be exact. Something that has really helped me is that I bought 2 of the Biggest Loser Cookbooks..the recipes are SO easy to follow with minimal ingredients and the ingredients are pretty normal! Really fast meals that are really yummy! My whole family loves all the meals I have cooked so far from these cookbooks and they don't even know that it is good for them! You should try it. I bought my cookbooks on eBay for less than $5 each. I also bought the Joy Fit Club Cookbook on eBay which has also helped me with meals as well as inspiration. I recommend checking these out, I think it will help you!

And then the reverse is true!

Going from health food addict to eating junk food can make you sick! I never have eaten a lot of fast food before, but the last time I did, I threw up. If I HAVE to eat fast food (which will never happen again now!), it would be a grilled chicken sandwich ONLY from Wendy's or Cookout. But now I've completely cut that out of my lifestyle. I will never again eat fast food. Yuck!

personally, I have to eat lightly early in the day, otherwise I have problems with nausea...nausea that tends to go away if I eat even MORE. Its a bad cycle to start, and I goofed this morning and had a Chick-fil-a biscuit instead of my usual banana...

Try experimenting with how often you eat, how much you eat when, and even if combining an old "comfort" food with a new "healthy" food...that beefy cheeseburger may still be greasy, but if you have a side of steamed broccoli instead of french fries...

Small changes from the old way is a good start. And once those become "normal" to you, make another small change or two. Going from drive-thru-addict to health-food-junkie overnight really can make you sick. Did that the first time I got on SP about 4 years ago

That is true, for some. Every one's bodies metabolize food differently depending on how their body works on a general basis, what they do through out the day and how they react to feel. I went through a time when I was nauseous after meals as well. A Greek yogurt, can be filling to some, but others bodies need more than a yogurt and fruit for breakfast. Some people just do better with more calories earlier in the day while others do better with more later. I have been through a very similar experience and it was because I was eating about the same as KellyMarie, which simply just was not enough.

IMHO, it sounds like you're eating enough to me! I think Greek yogurt is very fulling (and it has a lot of protein!!). A veggie burger with a side definitely sounds like a satisfying meal to me. I also think you'd be able to differentiate between nausea and hungry.

If you're previous diet consisted of a lot of processed, high fat foods, maybe your stomach is just having difficulty adjusting to real food, but I don't think it should make you nauseous. Perhaps try eating a meal that you would have eaten before and see if that nausea is still there. If it is, it isn't the healthy food but your stomach. If you feel fine eating what you were previously eating, then maybe see a dr. Actually, I'd see a dr in both cases since you'd want to know what was wrong with you! I can't think of any reason why healthy food would make you not feel well, unless the diet change is just a coincidence to the start of the nausea.

I hope you feel better soon!

Try eating more calorie dense foods. By adding in whole grain products, and other items that are higher in calories will help. Instead of eating iceburg lettuce (just an example), eat spinach or romaine. Also, make sure you are eating full servings of items. Sometimes if we try to guess at how much we are eating, we tend to under eat. Another things you could eat more times through out the day. Eat 4-6 small meals that consist of 250 - 400 calories. (this is going to depend on your calorie range and number of meals you eat. Divide the number of calories evenly into your meals). I'm just throwing out some suggestions.

I really don't feel deprived or hungry, but based on the fact that I have occasionally failed to meet enough calories in a day, maybe you're right. How do I eat more without feeling over full?

It actually sounds like you are not eating enough. Remember that this is about eating the right foods, not depriving your body of food.

Literally. I can't figure out what it is. When I eat what ever I want, I wouldn't say I feel good, but I feel normal. But my good days, today for example, I feel nauseous. And I can't figure out what it is. This morning I had greek yogurt with fruit and honey mixed in, and for lunch I'm having lots of broccoli with a veggie burger. If it were just once I would think it was something specific with the food. Something not cooked right, or too old. But it's usually.

Anyone have any insight?
