Just wanted to add my 2 cents worth here. When I made the switch to a vegetarian diet (almost 30 years ago) I recall that for the first 2 weeks I was so tired and I had a pounding headache that I could barely get off the couch.

Now I'm sure it had more to do with the fact that at the same time I gave up coffee. But all the same when you make any kind of dietary change IMO it's not uncommon to feel worse before you feel better perhaps because your body is going through a detox.

Think of a drug addict (in my case it was coffee) but if you were to think of someone who was trying to kick a cocaine habit or even cigarettes it will be easier to understand that you are going to feel worse ( A LOT Worse) before you feel better. And in these cases you can see that feeling sick is no excuse for giving up.

If you are someone who went from eating a diet of mostly processed crap food (with little to no fibre) and now are eating lots of fruits and vegetables and whole grains that's a lot for your body to deal with at once and maybe protesting by making you constipated, gassy or bloated. Or with headaches, and any other detox symptom. So you could very well be going through some sort of withdrawal from sugar, salt, fat, chemicals in packaged foods etc etc etc....
