The reason for all the uncomfort in your digestive system is because your pancreas secretes enzymes to digest your food and it secretes certain types of enzymes based on the food that you normally eat. So, when you abruptly change your diet, the pancreas has to catch up and that takes a few days. The upset feeling in your digestive system is because your pancreas is still secreting the enzymes to digest food from your old diet. Give it a few days, it'll catch up and you will feel better.

If you're not accustomed to eating a large number of veggies or much fiber, there will be an adjustment period. This can be anything from feeling like your food is poking you in the stomach to -er- going to the bathroom more often. If it's really bad, you may want to ease up on the amount of high-fiber foods for a day or two. The papaya enzyme might help. I know that papaya itself seems to help with digestion.

yep this is normal if you have changed your way of eating, especially if you've increased your fruit/veggie & protein intake. it should settle after about a week or so but everyone is different. my suggestion would be to start slow and gradually increase these to avoid it. Drinking plenty of water will help also.

During the first week, I have knocked myself out with eating proper and exercising every night and drinking 8 glasses (3 bottles) of water daily. Has anyone experienced gastrointestinal disturbances? Is this normal? When should it all calm down? or does it? I have only been on this program for 4 days now and have not weighed myself. I am one of those that believe in weekly weigh no more cause if I gain, I won't eat, hence the yo~yo diet. emoticon
