Could food be making me sick?

Asked by ItalianPrincess1217 (10085 points ) January 9th, 2014 from iPhone

For awhile (at least a few months) I have felt generally unwell on a daily basis. I feel lethargic even after a full night of sleep, have random aches in my body, get frequent headaches, and have digestion issues and stomach upset. I’m not on any medication other than birth control pills (and OTC sleeping pills at night).

My doctor has found nothing obvious that could be making me feel this way. Could this possibly be from a poor diet and lack of exercise? I rely on soda everyday for my caffeine fix. I eat pretty terrible. Fast foods, processed foods, etc.

I am so fed up with feeling like crap I went on a shopping trip today and bought all healthy foods. I will be making a major change to my diet and exercise routine (or lack of) to see if this is the issue. But could it really be contributing to my lack of energy and well being? Can food really make someone “sick”?
