So yesterday I posted my meal plan which included
1 liter of water
1/2 of a watermelon
Bag of green grapes
1 liter of water
'10' green/banana smoothie ( I only put 7 in, no greens)
and another '10' banana smoothie at work
1 liter water
Well I was so anxious to try the banana smoothie the first time since this was day 1 so I did not add greens, I ate that around 330 pm. Shortly before work I started to get a headache... The headache just grew very fast into a migraine. I felt so sick & pukey while my head was pounding. I didn't attempt to eat the other smoothie until 7 pm thinking it might help my stomach.. As soon as I took the first drink I felt I was going to vomit. Tried to drink water same thing.. I ended up just putting it down continued to feel sicker & sicker.. A little later I rushed to the bathroom were I almost didn't make it and threw up a lot.. Came home & went straight to bed.. Does anyone know why this happened? Its really scaring me from continuing..
What type of diet are you coming from?
A very poor unhealthy fatty diet. :-/ tea, coffee, junk foods, fried foods.. I did eat sort of healthy also salads, grilled chicken, lots of water, ff milk ect..
I'm thinking it was just the bananas that's all I could smell when I threw up and just the smell of the smoothie was turning my stomach... Yeah they were spotty little to no green on them.
Well the first one I drank right after I made it and that was the one that I threw up the other one I stuck in the fridge and could only get like two drinks down before I felt way to sick to continue.
Thank you. I definitely did not want to give up I wanted to give this 100%... I just cant feel sick all the time like that.. I have kids I have to be up/happy/healthy feeling for them ( I don't want to be all grumpy and miserable around them ) and I have a job that I have to do a lot of work in. Like yesterday I was able to get things done but not to the best of my ability's because all I could focus on was feeling sick.. My head was pounding, I was light headed, nauseated it was horrible :(. I felt like just giving up, I cried seriously because I just really wanted to do this I am tired of being overweight and unhealthy..
That definitely sounds like a migraine to me - I first started getting them as a child as a symptom of my (undiagnosed, at the time) Celiac disease. Very strong nausea and vomiting always accompany my migraines. It has an effect similar to getting a bad hangover and swearing off whichever particular drink you had the night before - when I get nausea during a migraine, the last thing I ate becomes the most disgusting thing in the world to me.
As far as why YOU got a migraine, the only thing I can think of is: a diet based around tea, coffee, and fried foods is severely dehydrating. Such a huge increase in your water consumption (watermelon + a couple of liters + grapes + a big smoothie = a shitload of water) could have had a diuretic effect and triggered a migraine.
