I have gone paleo for about 3 months now. I occasionally cheat on dark chocolate and have been eating quite a bit of fruit (about 4 servings a day) in addition to about 3 servings of veggies. All was good - constipation and bloating gone, energy back, etc.
Two months ago I started my new job, got really stressed out. Lost weight, and amenorrhea, bloating and constipation kicked in. I felt very gassy after meals. Probiotics stepped in - I eat sauerkraut/kimchi with my meals now but I still feel a little gassy. I started out paleo going low-fat but have been increasing fat for the past month. I have also tried going VLC but constipation kicked in, so I'm back to eating my veggies and fruits. Still, my digestion is not quite going right and my missed periods are worrying me. I have consciously gotten a better grip with my stressors and have been working on getting more rest and strength exercise.
What else should I do? Any recommendations? Should I resort to digestive enzymes?
