You should consult your primary care physician and they may want to do complete blood counts, liver function test and ultrasound of whole abdomen.

To rule out Fatty liver as a cause of symptoms especially from the symptoms you describe.

In the mean time you should avoid non vegetarian food and try to eat more fruits and vegetable.

Avoid foods with high fat content especially fried foods.

Try to consume more of fresh fruits and vegetables.
