Pain you describe can be caused by heartburn. Do you have any heartburn symptoms? Do you feel you have excess acid in your stomach? It is possible that you have a so called “silent heartburn” which is not really felt as acidity, but does cause the pain. I had it, and sometimes antacids help. The pain can be very strong. Poor digestion, constipation all contribute to it as it pushes onto the stomach.
Try to take an antacid and see if the pain goes away. If it does, than this is probably it. If it doesn’t go see your doctor.
If you want to improve your diet, you should definitely include more veggies. Eating just meat and string beans is not good enough nutrition wise.
