Help! Experiencing terrible cramps



Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am experiencing a cramp when I ate cream of wheat today. I am getting worried because I am not sure if this is normal or not. Should I be worried or do anyone know where this could be coming from?

Cream of wheat gave me terrible stomach cramps. I thought I needed to call 911 it was so bad. It was either too thick or I ate it too fast.

Did it eventually go away for you? Was cream of wheat the only food that caused it for you?

certain foods bother me now (although moreso when I was a new post-op - not so much bothers me this far out). Just don't eat them - or try eating them when you're further along in your journey. There's probably something in cream of wheat that your system is reacting to.

Thank you. That makes sense.

Try cream of rice and see what happens. That might tell you if it is the wheat or the texture.

Don't eat that, it's just filler food and not very nutritious - concentrate on your Protein goals and liquid goals. You are better off with ricotta bake, Greek yogurts or Soups with protein at this food stage - unless you have a milk allergy or something. Cream of wheat/rice are just processed carbs - no value. If you feel you need a carb try a baked sweet potato.

You are right. Carbs should be the last thing added to the menu. A little fruit (with protein - like berries in yoghurt) would be a carb source until closer to maintenance.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        That's amazing, it must feel great!

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

        Yay you!!! You're a rockstar girlie!!!

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
