New to Paleo looking for some advice
« on: July 26, 2017, 06:45:10 AM »
Hello Everyone,

please allow me to introduce myself.

I'm CQ Laowai (Chongqing Foreigner) I am a 35 year old male from Sheffield in England but live in Chongqing China.
I reached a point in my life where I didn't recognize myself anymore. After graduating university I was 110kg, 230lbs, 17+ stones (measurements regularly used to weight people). Then I started working out and losing weight. I came across Paleo by accident and recently bumped into a friend who has lost over 40lbs in 4 months on a similar diet. So I thought I would give it a go.

I'm in my fourth week now and already down 2kg. But I have noticed recently I have been having lots of stomach pain. Is this normal starting out on this diet? only I'm worried in case it is something serious. I looked online and read it could be drinking too much water (I drink 2-2.5 litres a day).

I am looking forward to meeting new people and getting tips and maybe a buddy to help each other on this diet. Which I must admit am loving, so easy to get fresh vegetables here I buy everyday with my wife then just go home and cook, so convenient and tasty.
Makes a nice change than eating the Frankenstein food from the West.
yours in fellowship
CQ laowai

CQ - welcome.

In this case - and I hate when I got this advice years ago - but I'd say to please just Message or visit your personal physician if possible.  Just to let them know of your new lifestyle and diet and to ensure nothing serious is going on.

I do doubt that it's anything serious but please keep us up to date with how you're feeling...

and WELCOME!      8)

Thanks dude,
Unfortunately living in China not that easy to find a good doctor, but luckily it has stopped now.
