I also used to binge on almond butter (with dates) but my body didn't seem to like it. Try removing it for a few weeks.

It is a very basic assumption that everybody's poop stinks. But is this actually a sign of pathology? Is flatulence part and parcel of our existance, or a sign of gut dysbiosis? Do people who eat their traditional food, such as Kitvians, have any... (more)
