No, I don't mean constipation. Has anyone else experienced diarrhoea after a few days on a meat-and-fat-only diet (or have any idea what might cause it)?
Background: Inspired by posters such as Aglaeé and Melissa I decided to try a meat-and-fat only diet for 2 weeks to begin combatting a suspected SIBO/dysbiosis problem. For the first few days my bowel movements were small but regular. Then, about 7 days into the diet I had a sudden onset of diarrhoea which caught me completely by surprise. Not simply loose stools: this was full on, profuse, watery, why-in-the-name-of-all-that-is-holy-is-it-so-far-from-the-organic-meat-counter-to-the-customer-toilets?-type diarrhoea that hit me in the middle of the afternoon. My diet was pretty constant the whole week (beef, lamb, broth, liver, haddock, a few dried herbs) and I didn't introduce anything new which could have suddenly caused this.
I chickened (or rather 'potatoed' - a big mistake, btw) out of the diet the next day, but I'm considering trying it again for a longer stretch. I'm back on a more standard GAPS-type diet at the moment.
Your thoughts and experiences much appreciated. Thanks!
