Feeling Nausous After My Workout

I don't know what to do. Can someone please tell me why I feel like throwing up after working out. I feel nausous and a little dizzy.

Are you eating anything first? Are you drinking enough water?

Re: Feeling Nausous After My Workout

I used to feel like that alot of times. My trainer had me start eating egg whites before my workout rather than anything else and it helped me. Before I started eating the egg whites I would sometimes throw up during my workout. Hope this helps.

Re: Feeling Nausous After My Workout

Thanks for the help, actually I do drink plenty of water (3 litres or more) and I do eat enough (I think), especially a lot of protein. I think one of the reasons for my feeling nausous might be because I'm pushing myself way too much. I might be working out just a little too hard. I don't know, its just a guess.

Re: Feeling Nausous After My Workout

dont know if this will help but drinking too much water, as opposed to gatorade or something, can dilute your electolytes to much and that can make you feel faint and sick to your stomach.

3 litres seems like alot, of course if you are sweating like a fish when you exercise or are in hot weather you need more water, but the trouble is when we sweat we lose alot of salt, and other electrolytes and when we drink water we dilute the blood even more, I would try substituting a litre or so with a exercise drink like powerade or gatorade or something.

If I am not mistaken too much protein in the diet can cause excessive water loss including salt, salt actually causes water to be lost as it draws water to itself as the body tries to dilute it before eliminating it via kidneys..
