pain in the right side below the rib

I am 32 years old height 5'10 weight 350 lbs I started a juicing diet 10 days ago I have lost 20 lbs, after 3 days of juicing I started to have pain in my right side below the ribs it feel like cramps.
Am I doing something wrong? or is my body reacting to the juicing diet.

Re: pain in the right side below the rib


You might have an electrolyte imbalance -- this means that with not enough nutrients and too much fluids you may have an imbalance in your magnesium, potassium, calcium. An imbalance will cause alls sorts of problems, including cramps and worse.

I suggest that you listen to your body. Even when you want to lose extra fat from your body, you still need the nutrition that real food gives you.

Re: pain in the right side below the rib

Juicing removes valuable fiber that you need to stay regular. Is it possible that the pains you are having are cause by constipation? To eliminate (no pun intended) that possibility, try a daily fiber supplement and see if the pain goes away.

Congrats on your weight loss!
