    So I am finally more serious about losing weight! In the last week I tried to count calories and make sure I am not eating more than 1600 1700 a day(the amount of calories I need if I stay sedentary). I know that might still be a lot if I want to lose weight, but I honestly can't eat less. I LOVE eating and I am kind of an stress/depression eater. Anyways, the problem is after sessions of work out(3/4 times a week) I feel like throwing up, I don't think I do very hard work outs, I used to do the same before but no such feeling happened like this. And just generally this feeling comes to me more and no I am not pregnant! I don't eat super healthy but make sure to get most stuff included in my diet. Any idea what the problem can be here?

    Are you properly hydrated?

    Also, make sure you're not eating anything too hard to digest prior to the gym.

    How long has this been going on?

    Maybe you're not used to the physical stress.

    Either that or you're drinking milk/eating something too close to your workout.

    two things make me feel that way:

    1) drinking soda or juice before a workout (sugar and/or carbonation)

    2) not breathing properly when doing exercises.

    I usually don't eat anything for at least an hour or two before work out. So probably not that. I "think" I breathe not too bad but I might be wrong.

    maybe you should try eating within an hour of when you work out. If I go in there on starvation mode my stomach feels like it's eating itself the entire workout.

    You body is just not used to physical exhaustion of this level. Whenever you step up the intensity and expect more endurance from yourself you often end up feeling dizzy, vertigo, light-headed, and nausea temporarily while your body adjusts.

    Focus on your breathing and let your body adjust to the more intense workouts but MAKE SURE you are thoroughly hydrated. Have a glass of water prior to the gym, and try to drink one or two more glasses during your workout. After leaving the gym, drink another.

    I am not sure eating before the gym will help. I can't workout within 2 hours of eating or I just have digestion problems and end up feeling shitty.

    Try giving yourself another week and make sure your hydrated and see how you feel.

    What I do:

    1) make sure you eat something about 2 hours before your workout - finished by 1 1/2 hours prior. Edit: I dont' mean milk and pizza, try something with some good carbs, whole grain breads, fruit, etc.

    2) Hydrate - start early in the morning, and make sure an hour prior to my workout I at least down a 24oz bottle of water.

    3) Suck it up - if you're pushing a workout at an intensity you're not used to this could just be the reality of you being out of shape.



    just my 2cents
     
  14. I throw up 1-4+ times a day, join the club sista.

    Gatorade FTW.

    He's cutting weight.

    You think hours in the gym and a balanced diet is the only way?

    Pen puts in HOURS in front of a toilet daily to get the body type he wants.

    You're drinking the gatorate to make up for the potassium an electrolytes you're losing from puking right?

    To the threadstarter, the suggestions in this thread are all very good, especially the suggestion to stay properly hydrated. I drink 2L a day when I'm not active and 3-4L when I'm very active.

    A few years ago, when I drastically increased my activity, I started feeling really nauseous all day and I could barely eat anything without puking it up. The problem ended up being acid reflux, which I wouldn't have guessed. I didn't even feel any burning, just the nausea. My doctor put me on PPI pills (proton-pump-inhibitors) and now I'm fine.

    You should take the advice from this thread, but if you're still nauseous, you should see a doctor, because he/she can help figure out what the problem is. I'm not saying it's acid reflux, but it could be another problem you wouldn't have guessed without seeing your doctor.
