Paleo tummy ache in the morning?

I did a quick search on this and didn't find it...

My wife and I are modified paleo for 3 weeks or so. (Just no grains or dairy)
We have found that we wake up in the morning with a mild stomache ache until the bathroom is visited.
Meals at dinner are very varied and balance well.
Any ideas?
thx

Re: Paleo tummy ache in the morning?

Might be adapting to a change in fiber consumption?

Rather than stating what you no longer eat it may help if you lay out what an average day looked liked prior to and then after your change in diet.

It is possible you are eating:
New foods you are not used to.
Significantly less or more fibre.
More animal protein
etc.

Ok.
There are alot of new foods and ingredients that we have added.
Almond flour, coconut flour, almond butter, dried fruits, more fruits, more veggies, and more nuts...

Basically:

Breakfast - Meal replacement shake 5 or 6 days. Same now. 1 or 2 days paleo muffin and eggs and bacon.

Snacks- Previously - cheese, protein bar, nuts, apple, grapefruit. Now - more kinds of nuts, seeds, more variety of fruit (dried and fresh), jerky, trio or lara bars.

Lunch - Prevously once a week I would have a sandwich and have a little cheese, but usually it was the same as now: leftover dinner; usually meat and veggie.

Dinner - Pre and now - meat or fish or poultry, veggies, salad

Just really eliminated dairy and grains, which I didn't eat much of.

I have one cup of coffee in the morning. I drink a couple of green teas a day, but mostly water.

Re: Paleo tummy ache in the morning?

Large quantities of nuts can cause digestive issues, especially until you acclimate.

Your diet seems heavily backloaded: nothing heavy all day, then a big meal at night. That would also backload the digestive effort.

Ideally, I'd suggest rearranging your schedule to allow a real breakfast. If that's not possible, at least add fresh fruit to it on a regular basis. An apple a day and all that.

I always value your posts Katherine, thx.

I put some fruit in my MRS for breakfast. Probably about 400 cal total with the nutrients found in 4000 cal regular food.
I do eat some fruit when I get to work, an hour after breakfast or less. I then eat every two hours. Lunch can be as big as dinner, maybe less a salad...
Last night we ate dinner at 5:45PM. Then we got home from the box about 9:30PM. I didn't eat (though hungry), and my wife had an egg. Neither of us had a tummy ache this morning...?
Maybe it is the adjustment to more nuts.
