Hi! I'm on all all-meat-diet atm to see if this works better for my IBS. So far, so good. I'm the third day in and had ground beef today - instant diarrhea! This always happens with ground beef, steaks and all other kinds of meat are okay. I... (more)

There is no scientific evidence that the Master Cleanse cleanses anyone of anything. What it does do is hose your gut bacteria, the bad and the good, irritate the lining of your entire digestive system, and deprive you of nutrients. Now it's time... (more)

Probably the fat. Coconut oil is very well known for a laxative effect if consumed in 'large' amounts, which can be as little as a TBSP.

Is your version of paleo very low carb? I found I had the same problem but adding back potatoes, white rice and other none gluten carbs pretty much resolved the issue. VLC is not for everyone.

Coconut oil is ~130 calories a tablespoon. The item you linked to is 3 softgels per serving, and 25 calories from fat, per serving. So, 25 / 130 = .19, round up to .20 or 1/5 for ease sake. That's one-fifth of tablespoon per serving, or 3/15 of a... (more)

The answer is that too much fat too quickly causes steatorrhea Fiber has very little to do with it. You could have a higher fiber, low (available) carb diet - i.e. a ton of broccoli, and very high fat and still have loose stools. (more)
