Is having stomachache a sign that you are not eating properly? I ask this because I constantly heard lets say coworkers from time to time, that they have stomachache, colitis, etc because they ate a lot hours earlier or they ate something they should have not eaten.

I do think you are right that many times what we eat affects how we feel and many digestive problems are probably caused by poor eating habits.

However, there are also many people who have problems such as colitis that are not caused by diet, although they may be worsened by eating the wrong foods.

Good for you for making the effort to eat right and in moderation!
