Are you eating it undercooked? If so, it's probably bacteria. Have you tried a different brand of ground beef? Bacteria can only live on the surface of meats, but when you grind meat, the very first sample that's infected will spread to the... (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.

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)

Fruit AND dried fruit?! Dried fruit is a major laxative and gas-producer. DEFINITELY ditch that. Also might want to ditch the nuts for a while too, they aren't easy to digest. And increase your meat/fish servings from 1 to ideally 3.
