I remember the very first time I cleaned up my diet. I may have been eating better but was feeling worse.

Feeling like crud. I had a headache, my stomach wasn’t happy, and I was (to say the least) super grouchy.

The good news is those feelings went away pretty quickly.

But 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?

Are you eating better but feeling worse? This photo of a bowl of nutrient-dense fiber-filled vegetables is sure to help you 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.

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

I hope this helps!
