I had this issue before I went raw despite the fact I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t eat processed sugar, carbs, gluten (no bread, no pasta Ã¢â‚¬â€œ nothing) and no soy. My belly is still pretty distended despite the fact that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m actually losing fat all over. The fact that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m losing weight make my belly distention look even worse. If I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t hold it in, I look pregnant.
I know part of my problem is posture and the rest is digestion though my digestion has been pretty regular for the past 6 months so I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know what it could be.
As far as diet, I tried to cut back on fats and nuts to see if some of my belly will go down. I tried a low-fat, low-protein raw diet for about two days I felt so spacey, headachy, tried, irritable and dizzy, I had to eat Ã‚Â½ of avocado to feel normal again.
I tried just eating green smoothies and fruit for a day and I felt like a bottomless pit. When I get hungry, I tried eating a green smoothie of fruit and it fills me up like water, but an hour later, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m insanely hungry again: hunger pangs and a headache. I go through so much food that way. I can eat Ã‚Â½ avocado or a young coconut and it will last me for 2 hours most of the time. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t eat much nuts at all.
What could the distention be? How can I get rid of it?
