Hi, I've been whole-food plant-based for about two and a half years now, and am seriously considering incorporating some animal foods back into my diet (even though I am well aware that they are very unhealthy and obviously bad in terms of the treatment of animals) because I almost never feel satisfied on this diet with a normal amount of food, and need to overeat to quite a large degree before I feel satisfied. Then I feel uncomfortably full, my stomach extends to all this food, and I get bloating and can't really move around much afterwards. If I try to eat a normal amount of food and don't keep eating until I feel satisfied, I have bad sleeping problems, get very lethargic, irritable, low mood, etc. and get diarrhoea more often. I need to force feed myself large amounts of food to avoid all of these problems, which leads to the problems I have with overeating. None of this happened before going plant-based (though I did have other problems back then like frequent heartburn, pimples, constipation, and some other things I think that I can't remember). I've also noticed that I very often have diarrhoea after every meal, or in the middle of eating, whether I overeat or not (though I think I get it more if I don't eat until satisfied). Very often I'll be in the middle of eating, and need to pause my meal and go the toilet. As you can imagine, this is very annoying, and not something I have ever experienced before I transitioned to a plant-based diet. For instance, just before, I cooked around 150 grams of bulgur, and around 100 grams of lentils, with a large amount of vegetable stew (red peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, tomato), and a few hundred grams of broccoli. I ate until I was satisfied, which results in feeling a bit of pain in my stomach, bloated (which made it uncomfortable to walk around), and had diarrhoea around half an hour after eating. I don't think it was some type of food poisoning, as I soaked the lentils overnight, and cooked them thoroughly, and I also washed the vegetables before preparing them. Has anyone had similar experiences? Do you think it might be a good idea to try and eat a lot of high calorie plant-foods so that I could try and get more satisfied with a smaller volume of food, because I don't want to keep eating like this forever; it's nauseating and feels like a massive chore to force feed myself such a huge amount of food every meal. I want to feel full eating just a regular amount of food. Sorry for the wall of text. But I feel I needed to include that level of detail to get my point across.
