I'm just curious if higher carb helps some people that had issues with constipation on paleo. I remember seeing a few people mention eating higher carb helps people with constipation on various forums and I THINK on the perfect health diet too they briefly say something about it.
I have an issue with constipation ever since I was paleo. I'm seeing a GI specialist in a few days to see whats wrong. Especially in the last week i am get bouts of stomach pain, bloating, and i've decided to go off the laxatives because i know you can become dependent on them and have issues with gut flora.
I used to be low carb, approx 50-80g. sometimes a bit more, sometimes a bit less. I'm a student and it seems easier for me to go higher carb in terms of meal preparation and all my life no matter what diet, from crappy takeaway to paleo i've always been " thin ", so no suspected insulin levels there. My energy levels are the same low carb or higher carb which I am climbing more towards.
If there's any other advice that you might have that would be awesome.
I just stopped laxatives two days ago after using them on and off for about 3 months. I take Inner health plus dairy free probiotic once a day. I am lactose intolerant so I don't eat dairy, if i do it'll be yogourt with a lactase supplement.
