WHEN YOU EAT BETTER BUT FEEL WORSE

The fact is, feeling a little “off” after changing your diet is pretty common, and it can catch you by surprise ….

Because how could you feel worse when you are taking steps to feel better?

If it happens to you, here are a few possible causes:

  • Detox symptoms: When you change the way you eat, your body has to get used to it. This can cause headaches, fatigue, and irritability. The good news is, this is usually temporary and you’ll start feeling better as your body gets used to the new foods.
  • More fiber than you’re used to: If you have been eating a low-fiber diet and suddenly start loading up on it, it can take your digestive system a while to adjust. Try gradually increasing the amount of fiber you eat instead of making big changes.
  • Dehydration: It’s important to drink enough water throughout the day (especially if you boost your fiber). If you’re not getting enough fluids, you might start to feel worse.
  • Lack of planning: It can be harder to stick to a healthy diet if you’re not planning and preparing your meals in advance! This can make it harder to eat enough food and/or eat balanced meals.

Just keep in mind that it takes time for your body to get used to a new way of eating. 

Also: If it keeps up, check in with your healthcare provider!

I hope this helps!
