    Has anyone experienced stomach pains since they started dieting..I seem to be getting them quite a lot lately (not doing anything different) and I just wondered if it was par for the course, or something I should be keeping an eye on.

    I find I get a lot fewer stomach aches since I've been on SW; I used to have pretty much constant indigestion.

    If you're feeling worried about your tummy aches, perhaps keep a food diary and note down when your pains come on? Then you might be able to spot a pattern. (With me, for example, I know that if I eat more fibre than usual, that usually upsets my tum.)

    Another thought: have you been doing more exercise than usual, or doing sit-ups? I find a food-related stomach ache can often be indistinguishable from a strained/overworked-muscle stomach ache.

    When I dieted when I was younger I used to get it all the time, it was agonising. In those days Id have an apple or a tin of peas for lunch and that was it.

    Nowadays eating so much more on SW I dont get them so I dont know if its just not eating enough, I used to feel like my stomach was digesting itself :sigh:

    I've been suffering from sporadic pains too. I've checked my food diary from when it hurts and narrowed it down to when I had a lot of pasta or strawberries. I didn't eat a lot of pasta before sw so maybe mine is starchy carbs. Also, I started on the whole scan bran last week and it's worked wonders. Only had a mild ache this week opposed to crippling pain week before.

    Thanks all, I will keep an eye on it.

    I've noticed too that if I eat anything rich now I get severe pains, but it's not only then.
