I have been strict PALEO for 38 days, and I started it after a 15 day master cleanse. The master cleanse was 15 days of only water, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and coconut nectar, no food or beverage at all for those 15 days. This was my 3rd cleans in 18 months.
Since starting, I have been eating only grass fed beef, sugar free, nitrate free bacon (not a lot), fruit, veggies, lots of carrots, Steves Paleo Kits are a staple, as are the Paleo Crunch Bars. I eat sunflower seeds, raw, and unsalted, and spaghetti squash, as well as lots of water and some almonds.
My gut has been rumbling since almost day one, so I tried a pro-biotic, that just made the diarrhea more predictable. The pro-biotic was seaweed based, and organic, so not fillers, or non paleo ingredients.
I have not cheated one time, so zero wheat, zero dairy, no additives, only pure clean food, yet I feel like crap almost all the time.
I do feel it’s a balance thing, but cant figure out what it is. I have tried knocking out the almonds, the pro-biotic, and went days without tree nuts, yet its the same. For only 2 of the last 38 days, I had constipation, otherwise, I just plain feel like crap ALL THE TIME, and have gas 24/7, usually is deadly for anyone else in the vacinity, EVEN WHEN IM OUTSIDE. It cant be this uncomfortable to be Paleo.
I read everywhere, every post, answer, theory and the like, yet no one really comes out and says, when you go on Paleo, you ........, so be aware. Maybe that statement does not exist, but I need some help bad.
