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 (eating SAD), it came after prolonged periods of stress (workplace, emotional, etc.). Thanks to my charmed existence, I no longer have prolonged periods of stress (don't hate me). But it would clear up when the stress diminished.
My most recent issues began during my Whole30 in October. I'm not saying the Whole30 caused it (correlation does not equal causation!), but there it is. After finishing the Whole30, I got the first of what now appears to be three waves of an intestinal bug (have a toddler at home). In between and since the last of the bug, I am STILL having IB symptoms. Forgive the TMI to come, but it seems recently the bloating and gas have gotten a bit better, but not the * ahem * stools. I also during this time had my first breakouts of acne since being on Paleo, and my weight ticked up by a few pounds. I am also sleeping terribly, waking up a time or two during the night and not being able to get back to sleep.
Knowing that these types of symptoms travel together and are often seen when eating SAD, I am really befuddled. Nothing else about my diet or exercise regimen has changed, save for making small improvements like a lot less dairy, alcohol, and nuts.
So WTF? And what can I do to turn this around? First person to suggest probiotics wins a prize!
