Hey all, because I know everyone likes talking about poop... I've been restricting my processed foods/sugar/carbs over the past month, incorporating more vegetables and protein into my diet before going paleo. 7 days ago I took the plunge and... (more)
On the other hand, you just went gluten free. And what you're describing sounds like a person with celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity who is healing. You might like to poke around over at celiac.com
This is embarrassing, but I definitely need some help here. I am in China and have harder access to all the variety and vegetables I get back home. Because of this, I haven't had a bowel movement in a week. There are vegetables and fruit available... (more)
You are in China, there must be some good quality teas, green & oolong. You can always visit a Chinese herbalist as a last resort. Don't underestimate the power of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)!
I'm looking to become a pooing champion. I need someone to show me how. So, if anyone has had IBS like symptoms and found a way to have regular healthy poo please share. Who here has reached poo nirvana?
Ive been eating paleo for 3 months now. Almost gave up at the beginning because it gave me bad stomach cramps and diarrhea for 10 days. I finally went on a one day, saltine and ginger ale diet and was back to normal. However, I've been studying... (more)
I don't want to be gross, but when I go, it's tiny round balls. Sorta 'neat', because there's not a lot of clean up, but I don't imagine that it's a good thing. What's the minimum amount of fiber I have to eat to change this up? I juss hate... (more)
Okay, I haven't seen anything like this on the site or... in my life. My poop. It's always sucked, so I started taking probiotics because fiber wasn't doing shit. I pooped like, 4-5 times within the first day on probiotics. Great! But that... (more)
I've been going steady paleo for about 3 weeks now. Staples of my diet are fish (both fresh and canned), avocados, and green vegetables like kale, spinach and broccoli. I've been VLC and I feel fantastic. For the first 2 weeks I had barely any... (more)
Been Paleo for about 6 weeks. When I first started, I had fewer bowel movements but they were usually dark in color and solid/clearing movements. I'm still having solid/clearing movements generally, but lately they have been orange in color. This... (more)
I'm wondering what grains you've incorporated into your eating, if you have. I've been strictly paleo with various carb levels for over two years, and in the last 1-2 months have started eating white rice, wild rice, sprouted spelt, oatmeal,... (more)
I have number of autoimmune problems (autoimmune cardio myopathy, celiac, thyroid, and liver) though I never had ANY health problems before 2 years ago (I am a 30 year old wellness coach and fitness instructor) BUT- Have always had bad GI issues... (more)
Is there such a thing as eating too many vegetables? I load my plate with vegetables (and a serving of protein/fat) at every meal in hopes of feeling "full". I find that growing up on pasta and bread makes it difficult for me to control that "I'm... (more)
Hey, I am new to paleo, just about a week or so. I have noticed, what may be a disturbing change in my bowel movements. 1. I hardly go anymore, and there isn't much when I do (I have heard this is normal so I am not really concerned). What I am... (more)
Sounds normal to me while your body is adjusting. Add a bit more fat, make sure you are hydrated and take 200-400 mg Magnsium Citrate before bed to help avoid constipation.
Are the number of bowel movements one has per day related to how many meals they eat? For example, one big meal on Monday, comes out Wednesday, or two meals on Monday comes out on Wednesday, in two bowel movements. My movement comes in the... (more)
At the Paleo Summit I believe it was Dr. Allison Siebecker, a Naturopathic Doctor, that stated your poop should float in the toilet. This is one indicator that it's healthy. My poop sinks and has been my entire life for as long as I can... (more)
Since last week my bm's 've been really huge and i feel constant uncomfortable pressure in my bowels all day long.It can be because of stressful mornings,overeating, having breakfast on full stomach.I know,its a sort of psychologic problem,but i... (more)
We are all neurotic in our own way and sometimes we just need someone to tell us to get our head out of our A$$ and get a grip!! I think I need that right now. As I have mentioned before I struggled with IBS for 8 LONG years and anyone who has... (more)
Yeah, yeah, there are some questions out there about this. But they're all from newbies. What I want to know is: Has anyone DEVELOPED it after eating Paleo for an extended period of time? Some backstory. Previously when I had bouts of IB... (more)
tmi but my bowel movements still arent normal after going paleo. i eat eggs sometimes but i also read it could be from dehydration? i drink a ton of water and take magnesium. anyone else experience this? lookin for n=1. thanks! (more)
This was the protocol that helped me with my GI issues: http://eugenia.queru.com/2011/11/15/fixing-constipation/
So it's been 6 weeks full Paleo and I still feel awful, in fact I feel my IBS is worse than before. So much constipation, colon spasm, and paltry, incomplete, and unsatisfying bowel movements. I saw my naturopath today - he really supports... (more)
Rice is best for IBS-D. It sounds like you are IBS-C? If that's correct you are going to have try something different. I am IBS-CD, so when I have IBS-C issues, I know I need to Up probiotic consumption Be careful with or eliminate dairy and... (more)
Just like the title says, I have solid, regular bowel movements every day. The only caveat though is wretched farts. After probably 1/3 of my meals, I have some pretty bad farts. What gives? If it was a specific food or type of food causing... (more)
She'd be mortified if she knew I was posting here, but I'm at my wit's end. Daughter is a few weeks shy of 10. For years now, she has had massive bowel movements. We're talking brick-like solidity, folks. So much so that it clogs toilets if... (more)
What say you? . . . (meaning, do you ever hack your bodily fluids? have any fluids changed in composition or amount while you've been on paleo, other than fewer tears because you're so goshdarn happy? are any of these important health... (more)
I know there are lots of poop questions on here but none of them really help me out. I've brought this up before when I first started Paleo and had people telling me to up my carbs, up my fats, lower my fats, lower my protein, eat stems, etc.,... (more)
My latest post on my blog was about this. I struggled with loose stool a lot on strict paleo and it subsided when I would eat an apple sauce/banana/pumpkin/broth diet. Finally I got it to go away altogether by just well...not eating paleo. I still... (more)
This came up in a Q and A and i'd love to hear the boards feelings on this soft subject.
